Comments: This perennial is an excellent shade tolerant ground cover for the cooler regions of the country. Performs especially well and spreads freely where there is an abundance of humus in the soil or where surface mulch is added to a planting bed. Pink to mauve colored flowers are present in late spring and throughout the summer months.
