This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

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

    Spreading slowly by underground rhizomes to form a clump of rich green maple-like foliage, this attractive perennial also produces pretty sprays of bell-shaped white flowers in spring. Towards the end of summer, the foliage takes on rich claret tones before it starts to die back and sometimes this can be quite dazzling. Originating from wooded areas in N. E. Asia, it provides valuable groundcover in shadier positions and looks particularly good when planted in drifts.

  • Garden care: Lift and divid overly large clumps in spring, just before new growth begins. Protect the newly emerging foliage from slugs and snails. Keep well watered during the warmer months.
