Soil: Loose, Loamy, Well drained
Moisture: Average to Dry
Light: Part to Full Shade
Plant Height: 6 to 12 inches
Plant Width: 12 to 18 inches
Landscape Value: Excellent ground cover for dry shade and underplanting for shade perennials. Good for massing and as a lawn substitute for dry soils in shady areas, as it forms a turf that never needs mowing or can be mowed to 2 inches. Thrives in the shade of oaks and maples. Good for naturalizing and rain gardens.
Clumping, low-growing, semi-evergreen perennial that slowly spreads by creeping rhizomes (underground stems) to form colonies. Glossy, bright green, arching leaves turn tan-colored in the fall. Foliage can be cut to ground level in early spring before new growth emerges. Yellow-brown flowers occur on stalks that rise above the foliage in late spring, producing clusters of brown seed capsules attractive to small songbirds and mammals. Tolerates drought.
