Prosartes maculata

spotted mandarin

Spotted mandarin, another member of the lily family, is a great choice for moist shade. Once established, this plant will form clumps that, in spring, put out nodding whitish-yellow flowers with minutely speckled petals. With sleek, deep-green leaves on arching stem, this plant will bring beauty and textural contrast to any rich, loamy shade garden, all the while attracting low-riding spring pollinators.
