This pretty little plant is a British native; it has most unusual, bell shaped flowers in purplish-pink, which are held above the leaves. The foliage of green serrated leaves resembles a strawberry plant. It likes a moist situation in partial sun. It is shallow rooted and spreads into attractive clumps; these are easily divided in spring.
