A good choice for groundcover in a shady spot, even a dry one such as under trees, this little beauty will spread to form a pretty much evergreen carpet of heart-shaped leaves, tinged with bronze, which take on a more reddish hue in autumn and winter. Spring brings dancing clusters of little daffodil-yellow flowers. Charming but tough. Partial shade. Any well drained soil. 12 in. 1 litre pot.
