Huge blooms are bright pink with a fine spray of tiny dark pink to wine colored spots on all of the petals. Most flowers have soft blush pink backs, but others have nicely contrasting white backs, lending a two-tone look to the blooms. Very strong, pencil-width stems carry loads of blossoms from early through mid-spring.
Group or mass under trees and woodland gardens where flowers can be viewed in early spring.
Remove tattered winter foliage in early spring. Prefers rich, moist, well drained soils and wind protection.
