It is a interesting perennial.  Hardy and easy to grow.   Plants prefer partial shade to full shade location in moist soil.  Best growing for woodland garden.  Large foliage is very ornamental and its hidden medium white flowers appear in spring follow with edible fruit when they are ripe (the whole plant including unripe fruit are toxic).  Flowers attract bees, fruit attract birds.   Medicinal. USDA Zones:3-9.  Mature size:1′-2′(H) X 1′-1.5′(W).   Propagate by seeds, bulb/rhizomes/tubers, division.   Medicinal herb.

它是蠻有意思的多年生草花.  強健易栽種.  最好栽種於半日照到全日照的環境中以濕潤的土壤來種植.  以濕潤的林地為佳.  植株的葉片很大片很具觀賞價值,春開白色或紅色不算小的花隨之夏天生長的成熟果實是可以食用的(全株包括它未熟的果實是有毒的).  花吸引蜂類,果實吸引鳥類食用.  耐寒也耐熱.  成熟植株高1-2呎,寬幅1-1.5呎.  主以種子,分球/塊根或分株方式來繁殖.   它是一種藥用植物.

  1. Ha! I had no idea the fruits are edible! I grow this plant, but it doesn’t quite like where it is (too dry) so it dies back prematurely every year. I should probably move it, but heck – this year, everything is dry…
