A lovely shade ground cover, if you have moist soil, which makes beautiful foliage patterns that often remain through a mild winter. Vigorous, so keep an eye on it or plant it in a drier location. This species is native to BC but is only found in limited locations on the southern tip of the Queen Charlotte Islands and near Barkley Sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is much more common south of the border and into California where it is an understorey plant in the giant redwood forests.
