Got chloranthus? Ever heard of chloranthus? This Chinese woodland perennial has been dissed by taxonomists when it was kicked out of all major plant families and segregated in its own family Chloranthaceae. Surely reparations are in order for this dastardly act! This charming (means no one would buy it for the flowers) perennial makes an easy-to-grow 18" tall x 18" wide clump of stems, each topped with only four dark olive-green leaves that emerge with a nice purple cast. Atop the leaves in May are long, dark purple, pendulous spikes of small, white flowers. Chloranthus sessilifolius is very high on cute...very low on, "Let's have a block party since the chloranthus are in flower."
