In the spring, this pretty little plant will produce fragrant white blooms featuring a delightful yellow centre. The bright green leaves of this semi-evergreen perennial are tooth veined and rosette forming.
Grow in moist, well-drained soil. Will tolerate most soil types, though prefers acidic, and requires full or partial shade.
Caring and Maintenance
Dividing and replanting in spring is optional and advised, as well as taking basal cuttings. Water regularly through dry periods.
A perennial is a plant that lives for more than two years. Perennials are flowering plants which grow and bloom over the spring and summer and then die back every autumn and winter. They typically grow structures that allow them to adapt to living from one year to the next through a form of vegetative reproduction rather than seeding. Perennial plants often have deep, extensive root systems which can hold soil to prevent erosion, capture dissolved nitrogen before it can contaminate ground and surface water, and outcompete weeds. They grow very well in conditions that are poor in resources due to their earlier emergence in the spring, and the development of larger root systems which can access water and soil nutrients deeper in the soil.
"These were so fresh without one discoloured leaf. Seen in local nurseries at this time of year looking quite rough"

"My plants arrived well packed and hydrated and were still as good when I planted them three days ago. I will be back for more and recommend this supplier any day! Stuart."
