Description

Height x Spread: 25cm x 30cm

Small, bright yellow flowers like jesters' hats dance on wiry stems above a mound of heart-shaped evergreen foliage, copper when young maturing to green and gently ragged around the edges.

Originating from Sichuan Province in China, this is a quite unfussy, easy to grow plant.  It prefers a rich, moist but free-draining soil in partial shade, but can also cope with more sun and a marginally drier soil.  Great for providing year round interest in that difficult shady spot of the garden.
