Very similar to the species, but with flowers perhaps slightly paler and a vigorously spreading habit.
Moist but reasonably well drained, humus-rich soil which is not too alkaline. Best in part or deep shade. Due to the late flowering a sheltered position is needed in cold areas. Mulch deeply before winter if possible.
From seed or by division in early spring.
