This stoloniferous (and therefore spreading) Chinese ground cover has interesting white flower clusters with conspicuous stamens tipped with pink anthers and surrounded by light green bracts. In March and April flowers are held just above large, fleshy, ciliated leaves with scalloped edges, on stout red stems. The low-lying, overlapping leaves are useful for suppressing weeds. When new, they have an interesting pinkish-tan color and then become deep green with sometimes a reddish tinge. Chrysosplenium is a smaller and interesting cousin of Bergenia, both of the Saxifragaceae family. Possibly deer-resistant. 10" T
