This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow to average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    An excellent ground-covering form with lemon yellow flowers, that will slowly spread to create a dense, semi-evergreen carpet of heart-shaped, mid green leaflets, which are brownish-red when young. Tough and undemanding, it will cope well with drought once it has become established making it invaluable in dry shady locations.

  • Garden care: In early spring remove dead and damaged leaves before the flowers appear and apply a thick mulch of compost or well-rotted compost around the crown of the plant. Lift and divide large clumps in autumn.
