From the top of these grey, pumpkin-shaped corms, which sit just below ground level, emerge the striking green and silver mottled foliage in early October, making 6-12" wide mounds. In July, the tiny pink dodecatheon-like flowers poke through the ground prior to the emerging foliage. By late spring, the foliage dies down and does something many of us wish we could do...go to sleep for the summer. This seed strain produces plants with heavily green and silver mottled leaves that are slightly longer than wide. We prefer to site them at the base or under the canopy of large deciduous trees or shrubs where they can remain dry when dormant.
