Quick Overview:

Mukdenia rossii is native to rocky slopes and ravines in China, Manchuria and Korea. It is a compact herbaceous perennial that grows in a heuchera-like clump to 12” tall. Palmate, rounded, 5-9 lobed, dentate, medium green leaves (to 5” long) are tinged with bronze. Leaves are attractive throughout the growing season. White, bell-shaped flowers in branched panicles rise on naked stems above the foliage clump to 16” tall in early spring.  ‘Karasuba’ is a cultivar that features more pronounced crimson red color in the leaf tips throughout summer. It may also be sold under the translated trade name of CRIMSON FANS.

Description

Best grown in moist, fertile, well-drained soils in part shade. Tolerates full sun in the northern part of its growing range. However, plants often struggle in the hot and humid summers of the deep South where they appreciate afternoon shade or sun dappled shade. Plants spread over time by short creeping rhizomes. Plants may self-seed in optimum growing conditions.
