Position: partial shade
Soil: fertile, well-drained soil, neutral to slightly acidic soil

A charming perennial that bears masses of delicate, star-shaped white flowers in midsummer. In autumn, the pretty, three-leafed foliage turns fiery red and the winter seedheads are a bonus too. Lovely towards the front of a shady, woodland border, where the flowers can be appreciated.Garden care: Divide congested plants in spring or autumn. Protect young shoots from slug attack.
