The combinations of pale limes, greens and creamy yellows found in the 'Magic Green' range is quite delicious.  Whatever the flower base shade, further interest is added through a deep reddish purple highlight in the form of freckles, blush or basal markings.  

Easy to grow and ever so pretty, this is also a tough, versatile perennial.  Long flowering from late winter into spring, it then forms attractive seed heads that remain upright over mounds of evergreen deeply divided foliage.  Perfect for a winter container, it also makes attractive and hardworking groundcover plus will help light up shaded areas of your garden or a woodland.  To get the best from it, plant it in a non-acidic, fertile, free draining soil with some moisture in partial shade, but it can tolerate more shade too. Bees love its nectar rich flowers.

Irritant to the skin, harmful if eaten.
