Rosettes of broad, reddish-brown flushed green foliage and heads of green flushed white flowers, with pinkish stamens, surrounded by bracts in late winter. Bristly stems and runners bearing fat reddish buds pruduce new plants that will root in time.
Best in good, moist but drained soil in shade! Will spread to makje a decent patch in time but it's far to pretty to be a nuisance.
A woodlander from China, in the Saxifrage family and you can see the relation to Bergenias (which are also Saxifragaceae).
