This species from western, central and southern Europe has creamy green flowers with burgundy edges that bloom in late winter. The textural, leathery, deeply cut foliage is evergreen providing excellent foliage 12 months of the year. Pay no attention to its common name. It never smells unless you mince up its foliage and what gardener would want to put it in the Cuisinart! Plant in full to part sun. Deer resistant.
Europe and Western Russia
Woodland, scrub, open rocky areas to around 6000 feet.
