Gets its name from its ‘galate’ spathe (hood) which means helmet, which it certainly resembles. A tall Himalayan species with wonderful three parted leaves sometimes edged in red. The helmet like flowers are striped green and white, held near the ground. Wonderful plant that needs a bit drier soil in summer to prosper. Free draining humus soil is a must. Hardy zones 5a-7.
