“Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it.”

Umbrellas in the shade garden is a good way to describe this plant. Pairs of large notched leaves, up to 1′ wide, are held on 12-18″ stalks. Beautifully simple creamy white single flowers dangle under its leaves in spring, a delight to see! The ‘apples’ which are the seed bodies, form in May. All plant parts are poisonous. A great ground cover plant. Will go dormant in dry situations and in summer. Spreads by runners.
