I agree with lejardin24. This is a diminutive plant. The flowering period doesn't last long but the leaves are quite distinct and I suppose noteworthy. I consider this a woodland plant, and I agree it seems to like alkaline soil. It would and will thrive in a bed covered with leaves (for instance sugar maple, beech, or red oak) where it peeks through in the spring. It will flower before the trees above it leaf-out. This plant will not sustain itself amongst more competitive plants. I see it in the wild in Michigan growing withing perhaps 70 ft of riverbanks in higher, sandy parts of forested areas---not in mud.

This plant seems to like alkaline soil. Tried to grow it in our woodland soil heavily ammended with compost. It was apparently too acidic. With the addition of lyme, scratched into the drip line twice a year, it is now thriving and blooming beautifully every spring! The plant is small and understated, but absolutely gorgeous....kind of like a smooth-leaf, woodland version of the indoor african violet. Double bloomed varieties are available from a grower in Canada, but very expensive!
