Positive branka On Apr 27, 2005, branka from Hobart, IN (Zone 5a) wrote:

This a very nice ground cover that is doing well for me in it's second year. It has pretty yellow flowers on straight stalks. Has attractive evergreen leathery leaves that unfold bronze pink in the spring, turn green in the summer then color with red markings in the fall. Will produce a dense, weed proof carpet.

Grows best in moderately moist area with humus rich soil. Divide dense rootstocks in autumn and remove old foilage in the early spring.
