A low growing perennial cultivar.

Has palmately lobed fresh green leaves with dark brown markings which turn pinky red in winter. Bears brush like spikes of tiny, pink, tan flowers.

Flowers between March to May

Loves a well drained but moist soil in light shade or woodland conditions. Very easy to keep happy and one for those difficult to plant pars of the garden.
