An excellent choice for out under the Doug Fir where you just can't seem to get enough water for anything to thrive. This West Coast native is low growing, to only 8-12" tall, and produces charming tiny white flowers with a spot of red dangle in spring. Shade is best, possibly some morning sun, in fertile soil with mulch. Needs water to establish and tolerates prolonged drought thereafter. Evergreen in USDA zone 8; root hardy to -10F, zone 5.

Though small, "these extraordinary flowers remind one of pirouetting ballet dancers in white tutus" (L.J.Clark); the attractive, columbine-like leaves of this delicate woodlander spring up sparingly from a rhizome. PSh/GdDrain

Airy rounded, lobed leaves and delicate beak-like white flowers provide a graceful groundcover in shaded areas. Northwest native.
