I purchased this plant at Lennilea Nursery in Huff's Church, PA in 2010. It has increased its coverage nicely in two seasons. Winter foliage color is a delicious red, multi-hued. Summer foliage color is green. Flower color is white. It works well in the front of the border where other taller plants won't shade it too much. Zone 6 PA

A nice plant that does tolerate filtered sunlight and works great shallowly rooted in an alpine garden. This is a very fast spreader and will take over less vigorous varieties if not hemmed in well and divided often.
