A perennial that provides early season nectar for the bees, they love it! It is one of the first plants to flower in March and will continue to flower all spring. Once the flowers are over it concentrates on producing big two-tone leaves which makes this a very attractive foliage plant for the front of the border. It reminds me of hostas but has hairy foliage, rather than smooth. I imagine that is why the slugs and snails leave it alone.

Hardy Perennial, prefers shade/part shade.
