Picked this up at a native plant sale quite some years ago, and it has happily lived in our shade garden ever since. Its flowers are mostly hidden, hanging underneath the handsomely arching stems with alternately arranged leaves.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
