Attractive deeply lobed leaves with a dark blotch in the centre make a great carpet of foliage throughout the summer. In late spring slender stems rise up and hold spikes of tiny star-shaped white flowers. This is a brilliant plant for covering the ground in a shady spot - plant it in large numbers for best effect.

  • Garden care: Removing the faded blooms regularly will prolong flowering and encourage more to come. Cut back and compost the spent flower stems in autumn and apply a dry mulch around the crown of the plant to protect against frost damage
