Cute little version of the more commonly grown P. biflorum, with glossy oval leaves and creamy white flowers in midspring. It came to our garden as a pick from the 2007 HPS/MAG spring plant sale - and later that day, I had the opportunity to admire nice stands of the plant at Chanticleer garden. Since then, I've been eagerly awaiting its performance in our garden - and I'm not disappointed. Very elegant little plant.

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