Eomecon chionantha
at Digging Dog


Eomecon chionantha partial shade  shade lover

A rare relative of our native bloodroot, only one species of this Chinese native exists. Spreading by underground rhizomes, long reddish petioles host glaucous, nearly succulent leaves that look like large wavy-edged hearts marked by light veining. Four-petaled, nearly transparent white flowers arranged in airy terminal panicles are anchored by prominent yellow stamens. At home in very shady places, let this exotic perennial colonize the ground beneath Kerria japonica ‘Albiflora’.

Blooms April.

Size: 18" high x 18" & spreading; hardy to zone 6.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Tricyrtis 'Empress' for its unique, late blooming flowers. Renowned for its extra large and wider open flowers, this exquisite, newly introduced Toad Lily is a formosana hybrid. Ornate, spidery spaced petals are inscribed by occasional darkened tips and irregular velvet-rich deep purple spots, stipples and mottling on a creamy white background. An enticing fall beacon amongst the shadows, ‘Empress’s showy terminal blooms are supported by an upright robust gathering of lustrous, semi-clasping dark green foliage that stays dapper all season.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
