I met this plant as a wild flower, while spending a year in Kelowna, British Columbia. In that area, it is known as Round-leaved Alumroot.

Has slightly hairy, dark green, rounded, lobed leaves with scalloped edges and often mottles with a pale green metallic sheen. Bears tall spikes of small, bell shaped, pale yellow-creamy flowers which bees love.

Flowers late April-June.

Likes a well drained, moist, fertile soil in sun or shade.
