Shade tolerance makes it an excellent choice for sideyards and city gardens dominated by tall buildings.

Companion Plants Coral Bells (Heuchera); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Hosta (Hosta); Ligularia (Ligularia); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra)
CARE
Care Thrives in enriched, moist, loose, well-drained soil; tolerates clay soils. Mulch to keep roots cool and preserve moisture, avoiding the crown. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. For a tidy appearance, remove old foliage in early spring. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
HISTORY
Lore Linnaeus named this genus for a mythological Greek goddess closely associated with the flowers in Old World folklore.
