This stoloniferous (and therefore spreading) Chinese ground cover has interesting white flower clusters with conspicuous stamens tipped with pink anthers surrounded by light green bracts. In March and April, flowers are held on stout red stems just above large, fleshy, ciliated leaves with scalloped edges. 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 an interesting cousin of Bergenia, both of the Saxifragaceae family. Possibly deer-resistant. 10" T

Minimum temperature: 5° F
