Height x Spread: 30cm x 45cm 

'Beni-kujaku's' spring display of larger dusky pink flowers with delicate white spurs really lifts the soul on a cold grey day.  As the sepal and petals are about the same length, the flowers appear almost double. 

A good choice then if you want to add impact with a splash of early season colour to a lightly shaded garden area, but your soil needs to be humus-rich and moist with some drainage for it to thrive.  It can tolerate drier conditions, including underplanting trees and shrubs, if treated to an annual mulch of organic matter.  Fresh green foliage follows the flowers delivering multi-seasonal interest plus useful, non-invasive ground cover.
