Tellima grandiflora

Fringe Cups

The Latin name of this dainty wildflower is an anagram of Mitella (American Bishop's Cap), its eastern counterpart. Sisters in the Saxifrage family, they are nearly identical twins. Clumps of hairy, rounded leaves, with slender flower stalks bearing pale, red-fringed "cups", make a charming ground cover for a shaded woodland or rock garden. They naturalize easily, spreading by creeping rootstock and self-sowing. Prefer shaded, moist, rich soil. Easy-care, though they appreciate an organic mulch. Water during summer dry spells. Plant spring or fall, 1 to 1½ feet apart. Grow more by dividing in spring or early fall, or sow seed in loose humus-rich soil.
