Japanese oddity, with green flowers over bright green foliage, which, as the species name suggests, is distinctly three-sectioned. Like P. pedatisecta, it will multiply when growing in a place where it's happy, so our stand has gotten larger through the years.
|Grows from potato-like tubers, which send up new growth towards the end of April |
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
