It has its natural habitat in deciduous forests and woodlands where it can make whole carpets and like many other woodland spring bloomers, it goes dormant when the tree canopy gets dense, to reappear in late winter, early spring. I love it!

Absolutely charming in bloom, it vanishes as the weather gets hotter, to return again the following spring.

A Spring flower which often grows in such great profusion, that it carpets the floor of the woodland with delicate, many petalled flowers of white, tinged and veined with purple. The main leaves arise from the ground only after flowering is completed.
