Comments: Are very good when naturalizes in the woodland garden. They may become somewhat ratty looking before they go dormant in late spring. For this reason they should not be planted where they are the in the spotlight, even though their spring bloom is pleasing and showy. Foliage stays green for only a short time after flowering.
