You might never notice this plant until you saw it perform in dry, dark, shaded landscape areas where its ability to grow, shine, and thrive will definitely grab your attention. Its glossy green foliage is one of the first to emerge in the early spring landscape, forming a pleasing rounded tuft that keeps its fresh look throughout the growing season. Seed stalks rise above foliage in late spring holding yellowish-brown flowers aloft that provide nectar to butterflies and seed for songbird feeding as the flowers fade. Since this plant thrives even under oaks, why not plant it in groups in this difficult area and watch it light up the darkness with greenery and an American Beauties show of critter color?
