My all-time favorite plant for shade or dappled shade. Mixes well with lungwort, bluebells, heuchera, smaller hostas, columbine, and lamium. The tiny little flowers that rise above the leaves are lovely, but I grow it primarily for its foliage.

Grows quickly to a nice sized mound. Easy to divide. Brightens up any shady corner.
