Comments: Attracts butterflies. All parts of plant are poisonous if ingested and handling plants may cause skin rash. A wonderful perennial for the woodland garden and other naturalistic sites where humus has accumulated over an extended period. Plants form relatively large patches if left growing in places where conditions are favorable. Plants go dormant in late summer, but return in winter. Plants are especially attractive growing in a deciduous forest during late winter and early spring. The dark green leaves with white veins are quite showy in a leaf covered terrain.
