Glossy, very dark brownish-bronze leaves, strongly contrasting with the shining, golden yellow flowers. Very attractive.

Not very fussy but prefers moist soil and a little shade. Thrives in woodlands, hedgerows and stream banks.

Rather slow to establish, taking some years to form a sizeable clump.
