Mukdenia rossii ‘Karasuba’

Fan plant is a nice looking spring blooming perennial that gets its common name from the fan shape of the leaves. They emerge light pink and then change to medium green with a sheen.  This cultivar has larger leaves that are conspicuously  tinted red. To 20″ high and spreading in moist rich soil with regular irrigation. Part shade to shade. White flowers in March/April. Remarkably unmolested by slugs and snails. In fall the foliage turns bright red before going deciduous. Wonderful well behaved perennial for moist wet soil, the banks of a stream, or border.. Very easy to grow. Spreads to several feet wide in 4 years. Japan.
