Esoteric alert! Hailing from mountain woodlands from Hokkaido to Shikoku, Coptis japonica is a dwarf cimicifuga relative that makes a very cute tiny evergreen clump that enlarges from a thick underground rhizome. Our 10-year-old clumps are a whopping 1' across. The 6" tall leaf stalks end with glossy, dark green, triangular-shaped leaves divided into tiny leaflets and topped in spring with 9" tall flowers spikes that resemble mixed drink umbrella-stirrers. We really like coptis, but honestly, it has about as much curb appeal as a whitewall tire planter in New York City's Upper East Side.
