This beautiful genus of woodland perennials belongs to the Berberidaceae family, commonly called 'inside-out flower'. They are native to the forest areas of the West Coast of the United States. A soft mound of distinct tri-lobed leaves gives way to spires of delicate flowers recurved back as if caught in the breeze. They thrive in a semi shaded moist spot, with humus rich soils. They are well worth growing for the foliage alone, it is like little duck feet dancing.
