Evergreen Groundcover with Decorative Foliage

Barrenwort is an evergreen perennial with colorful foliage and bright spring flowers.  It would be great for use in a naturalized area of your landscape or under your trees as an ornamental groundcover. 

The outstanding feature of your Barrenwort is the ornamental foliage.  The 3-inch, heart-shaped leaves are a dynamic green creating a lively and lovely groundcover during most of the year. 

However, the true value of your Barrenwort will be seen in the spring and fall when the foliage transforms into a majestic marbled bronze/red.  In addition, sprays of tiny, bright yellow flowers seem to float like delicate “fairy wings” above the foliage in mid spring, adding a splash of color to your yard until late spring.

Your Barrenwort is clearly an exceptional groundcover for its decorative foliage and splash of spring color.  However, it’s also an easy to care for perennial.  

Barrenwort is compact and hardy, requiring no special care from you.  It’s drought tolerant and holds no fascination for deer and rabbits, so you won’t have to worry about it being nibbled upon as your other plants sometimes are.  

All in all, Barrenwort is an exceptional plant for your yard.
