Comments: This is a perennial ground covering plant which spreads quite readily to the point of being invasive in certain situations if the soil contains a generous amount of humus or if there is a mulch covering the soil. Blooms in late winter and early spring. Tends to die back during hot summers especially if there is any drought stress.
