One small disappointment in my garden, perhaps all my fault, since I see it is supposed to like sun, but it's in my shade garden and just creeping along. Makes a nice ground cover, since I planted two or three about 3 years ago, and now I have about 10 of them. It's almost like a strawberry, setting out new shoots a little distance away, (one inch or so) rather than all growing in a single clump. I've never noticed any flowers on it. I will be putting several in a sunnier position for next year. Cute little plant in the shade, though. I'm using it as a border, and it's about 2' long now. Perfect under a hellebore.
