CT DR RG P
Moisture: Average to Wet
Light: Full to Part Sun
Plant Height: 6 to 30 inches
Plant Width: 12 to 18 inches
Landscape Value: Great in woodland gardens, along streams and ponds, in rain gardens, native gardens, borders, and naturalized areas.
Easy-to-grow and thrives in moist shady locations. Freely self-seeds and naturalizes into large colonies. Heart-shaped basal leaves form an attractive ground cover as long as soil moisture is consistent. Leaves are dark green above and purplish beneath. Flat-topped clusters of yellow daisy-like flowers bloom in spring atop 1 to 2 foot stalks. When planted en masse, lends a golden glow to the spring landscape. Prefers partial shade. If grown in full sun, requires more moisture. Tolerates wet soil and seasonal flooding. Attracts bees.
