I grew these successfully a couple years ago, put the seedlings in an area of our small shade garden, and forgot about them. The next year, they didn't return - they were probably shaded out by their neighbor plants. So this year, I plan to give them more TLC, so that they can survive and grow to maturity – I'm intrigued by the online description...

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
