    • I planted three of these at the end of last season in my part shade garden. They all came back and look more amazing this year then last. We did mulch up this area as we tend to get cold winters (MN Zone 4B). I could not be more pleased. The blooms were petite and lovely as well.

    • So pleased to acquire this beauty for my shade/part-shade border that mainly comprises native shrubs with white flowers and heucheras with beautiful leaf patterns. Gave her a star role right on the border between shade and sun, and looking forward to seeing how she contrasts with a Bartzella (yellow) peony later in summer.

    • A tiny but showy plant that never fails to draw the eye. Neighbors are always asking what "that charming flower" in my garden is. Since it's new to my garden, I don't know whether it will propagate, but the amount I've planted is doing well with no real effort. I planted them in clay soil mixed with topsoil and compost, in the front of the garden with ferns, astilbe, heucheras, and other shade plants.
