As a comment about Virginia Waterleaf (Hydrophyllum virginianum), Cyclaminist wrote:

A native plant for shade that feeds bees with nectar and pollen. The earliest leaves are variegated with white patches, but the leaves that develop later are completely green.

Many people don't like it because it's pretty tough and it self-seeds, but I just deadhead it to keep it from making seed.

The perfect late spring wildflower in my "wilder" garden adjacent to wetlands and creek although it does grow very well in dry, shady soil. Don't have to plant or maintain much, just dead-head if I'm feeling like a neat freak.
