Design IdeasPlant this perennial where its off season blossoms will grace shaded and woodland landscapes. Plant under trees in small clusters to add size and drama. Also fits into Asian-inspired landscapes under Japanese Maple and clipped Japanese Black Pine. A must for anyone with large old trees, under which few other plants will thrive.
