  • Unique CharactersticsThe clusters of beautiful, glossy flowers and rich shiny green leaves are a welcome sight in early spring. This is an easy plant for a water garden, beside a steam or in a boggy area. In such places it will thrive and increase in size each year. As it flowers early in the year before the tree foliage opens it is well suited to shady sites which will be advantageous in the hot summer weather as the foliage prefers some protection from intense hot sunshine. In far northern climates with cool summers it can be grown in full sun. The soil must have plenty of organic matter worked into to it and never be allowed to dry out. A delightful native that is very hardy and easy in the right spot
