This partial shade to full shade loving woodland native is a cute little charmer with pale to medium green, sword-like, upright foliage that spreads by thick rhizomes and can densely populate an area with ideal growing conditions. With its pale blue, sizable flower with golden falls, this April to early May bloomer can really jump start the spring shade garden and can look like a magical carpet of blue color in big, established stands. Besides providing such a charming spring bloom, this American Beauties classic provides invaluable cover to small woodland wildlife throughout the season.
