This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil, neutral to slightly acidic soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A charming perennial that bears masses of delicate, star-shaped white flowers in midsummer. In autumn, the pretty, three-leafed foliage turns fiery red and the winter seedheads are a bonus too. Lovely towards the front of a shady, woodland border, where the flowers can be appreciated.

  • Garden care: Divide congested plants in spring or autumn. Protect young shoots from slug attack.
