A superb rare perennial woodlander endemic to Japan. The vividly lime-green foliage looks just like that of a small, clumping fern and you would never guess that this is in fact from the Poppy family, even when the 15-20cm tall stems of pure white hanging bell-flowers are produced in June. These hang on thin and wiry pedicels from the stem along which they are spread.
The overall feel of this plant is 'elegance' it just has that undeniable class and grace.
Said to be evergreen, this is not quite true, the old leaves die away as new ones are produced so there is a small window (NOW) when we can send leafless plants which will soon grow fresh foliage.
Leafy loam in half shade is ideal and this makes a super companion plant for Trillium and other choice woodlanders.
