How to Use Bicolor Barrenwort In The Landscape

Wooded edges and naturalized areas are perfect without worrying about deer and rabbit damage.

Colonizing and spreading over banks and slopes where grass won't grow, these magical bells are amazing ground coverings and erosion control for tricky areas.

Cutting and Cottage gardens, rock gardens and shade gardens and borders, and containers are magical locations for these dainty plants!

#ProPlantTips For Care

Bi-Color Barrenwort needs part shade, even full shade in the hotter zones of 5-9. Cold hardy, these develop fall color in cooler climates and are semi-evergreen in mild winters.

Average to dry moisture requirements in well-drained soils, and aren't concerned with soil type. Preferring rich, humus and consistent medium moisture, they're drought tolerant once established.

Prune in late winter to clean dead foliage in late winter otherwise, it's very low maintenance and pest and disease-free!
