It is hard to ignore this shade lover that sports mounds of long leaves with spiny margins that flush a brilliant maroon in spring. Airy cream-colored flowers are held above the foliage in mid to late spring giving this plant a unique look. Outstanding when massed as a groundcover in a shady area. Easy to grow with few pest issues. Incredible garden texture from foliage and flowers. Deer and rabbit tolerant.
Thrives in part to full shade. Feed yearly with an organic fertilizer. Evergreen foliage can be cleaned in late winter before spring flush.
