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

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant
Our favorite plant this week: We love Viola ‘Rebecca’ for it's sweet, delectable scent and tidy compact clumps of dapper evergreen foliage. All are equally captivating, though no two are alike, each ebullient white flower showcases a creamy lemon flushed center and irregularly patterned, deep violet edges. This sweet smelling Viola should be ensconced near a well-traveled path or seating area, where its plentiful color flecked flowers can be easily relished ‘till the first hard frost.
