Comments: Will grow in fun sunlight if moisture is adequate. Greatest number of blossoms in spring, but has scattered flowers over the growing season. An excellent flowering plant for the shady areas and is sometimes used as an upright groundcover. It does well in calcareous soils. It is a favorite summer flowering plant in shady areas in zone 8.
