A happy-go-lucky little groundcover. Does well in sun to part-shade. Sends off shoots readily to multiply, and is easy to transplant. I like this at the front of beds, extending as far as they will go under shrubs and taller perennials. It makes a nice bright statement in full spring bloom, then continues to flower sporadically throughout summer. The teeny little berries are rather insipid, but the birds (and chickens) like them. Makes a nice pairing with Pacific Bleeding Heart (Dicentra formosa) as a companion ground cover that is more shade tolerant and will stay farther back in the bed.
