This is a true and faithful friend in my shade garden. One bunch is on the walkway that my clients use and I get asked about it weekly! The spotted,gracefully arched leaves look fresh into December and that alone gives it 5 stars in Michigan. The late Spring flowers are of breathtaking raspberry and blue and they are a wonderful bonus for this garden mainstay.
