Mitella diphylla

Bishop's-cap (Twoleaf Miterwort)

  • Woodland native groundcover that thrives in shade
  • Wonderful when grouped toward the garden front
  • Delicate bloom attracts early nectar seekers
  • Needs adequate moisture in soil to establish
  • Pest and maintenance free once established

This subtlety spectacular species is in its element in moist, shady gardens featuring foliage that best resembles Heuchera, forming a basal mound. Slender stalks rise above the foliage bearing very small, white, snowflake like blooms along its length. Outstanding when grouped!
