The architectural beauty and giant of the family produces massive and visually stunning deeply cut silver grey foliage. Bizarre and very beautiful, brownish flowers produce inflated seedpods in late summer. Often cut down by frost but sprouts again from the base growing fast and establishing well the next season. Can really give a big tropical exotic feel to your garden and can grow in containers, or conservatories very well to.
In our opinion "Melianthus major has probably the most beautiful large foliage of any plant that can be grown out of doors.
