This partial to full shade loving American Beauties perennial is a garden workhorse without being overbearing. Its curving, arching stems emerge from the soil and fill in with long, fairly narrow, medium green foliage that forms a nicely flowing clump when established in the garden. Greenish-yellow bell-like flowers emerge in a set with one on either side of the stem, dangling gracefully below the foliage in May. Purple berries follow in summer and provide food for birds and turtles while its foliage provides great cover for the same garden critters. This plant prefers moist, well-drained soil and provides an outstanding look planted in groups. It even puts on a surprisingly effective show of yellow foliage color in the fall!
