Jeffersonia dubia


Delicate mauve flowers emerge amongst unique foliage with two-lobed leaves.

This famous woodland rock garden plant from Korea has long been cultivated in Japan. The pretty up-facing light mauve flowers emerge in early spring and are followed by attractive two-lobed leaves. It is easy to grow in light to full shade in gritty, gravelly, humusy or leafy (i.e. light and well drained) soil where it will form large clumps.
