Producing up to 30 orange and yellow coloured flowers on each stem, this spring flowering perennial creates very pretty, semi-evergreen groundcover in the woodland garden or partially shaded border.
- Garden care: In early spring remove dead and damaged leaves before the flowers appear and apply a thick mulch of compost or well-rotted compost around the crown of the plant. Lift and divide large clumps in autumn.
