A semi-evergreen, rhizomatous perennial. Thriving in moist to wet soil, or even shallow water. It makes a colourful addition to a pond or as a utilitarian filler under garden taps or other difficult damp sites. Given a reasonably sunny position the heart shaped leaves turn attractive combinations of red, yellow and green, particularly during autumn.
