Interesting Notes

A winter-flowering shade plant that possesses the unique ability to bloom in sub-freezing temperatures, often when snow is on the ground. Grows to 18 inches tall and features cup-shaped, 2 inch diameter, rose-like flowers ranging in color from white to rose-purple with center crowns of contrasting bushy yellow stamens. Blooms in February for 6-8 weeks. Palmate dark green leaves are evergreen. When massed, plants form an attractive ground cover. Locate near a kitchen window, patio or sidewalk for a therapeutic pick-me-up on dreary late winter days.
