Beesia deltophylla, or False Bugbane, features patterned, embossed, heart-shaped leaves of green to gunmetal-blue. These form the perfect backdrop for the tall, delicate stems of small, widely-spaced, star-shaped white flowers. Bugbane is evergreen, for year round interest! Easily grown in moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. Water well until established, when it will tolerate dry shade. Cut spent flower stems in late summer and prune back old foliage in late winter. Excellent in a woodland garden or as a shady area groundcover.
