Impressive foliage plant, makes a bold statement in our shade garden. The fluffy flower spikes in late spring are a bonus. Illegally imported from my parents' garden in the Netherlands, as a chunk of root. Some years (like this) it does marvellously, others it just sulks (maybe it's homesick?)

A week or two after it starts blooming, the flowers take on a pink cast

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