This wonderful species has been spreading slowly among growers of woodland plants for the last decade or so. It is a reliable garden plant for a shady location, although it will sulk under trees if the soil becomes dust dry in summer.

The large (2 inch) flowers are freely produced in early spring,and can last for a month or more. The thick silver splashed green leaves make impressive clumps.

Growing at Wisley, it is compact and floriferous in a pot, though I think it is probably the same clone that I grow (just grown better)!
