This is a workhorse in the shade garden adding color highlights and texture year round. Although it is supposed to bloom it never has in my garden but that may be because it grows in deep shade here. It's lovely combined with ferns, ajuga, mondo grass, hostas and other shade plants. It can take some morning sun.
