Gardeners' Notes:

I love this little plant. It's my first year for it, and I got it late, but the flowers are just so interesting, and and the leaves are a lovely heart shape. I've put it in a perennial window box, and will divide it asap. I want lots of them! I'm looking for seeds, since I didn't get any this year.

pretty little low plant, spreads slowly and suppresses weeds. I have it on a crummy clay unimproved soil, slopes to the east, part shade, quite neglected. It does fine and has totally cool little flowers.

The flower shape is very interesting. I moved it from pot to garden, but in container it is easier to see and study the blooms. Very nice plant.

A very attractive plant. Not one to hit you in the eye, but with its own quiet beauty.
It likes well drained soil and sun - an alpine native.
It is very attractive to hoverflies and other beneficial insects
