Longspur barrenwort is a clump-forming, deciduous, rhizomatous perennial. Leaves, light green and flushed bronze when young, are heart-shaped with spiny margins. Four-petaled white, yellow, pink, or purple flowers, hanging in clusters, appear in mid- and late spring.
Care:  Thrives in full to partial shade with rich, well-drained soil, but will grow well (although slower) in dry conditions.
Propagation:  Divide in autumn or after flowering. Root rhizome cuttings under glass in winter; plant out after danger of frost has passed.
