Beautiful shiny bright green leaves with bold white or cream veining, appearing in autumn and proving winter interest. Green or creamy-white flowers in spring and spikes of bright red berries in late summer or early autumn. Foliage dies away in early summer.
Thrives best in rich loamy soil and semi-shade, but will grow in most reasonable soils.
By division and replanting of tubers, which is best done during summer.
Good foliage effect, especially in late winter. Very effective planted with snowdrops, hellebores and winter aconites.
Berries are poisonous and contact with sap may cause irritation of skin or eyes.
