The lush heart-shaped leaves of Red Barrenwort, aka Bishop's Hat, form dense mounds that provide a backdrop for enchanting springtime flowers. Red Barrenwort is deer-resistant and drought-tolerant once established, so is a perfect specimen for those dry shady spots in your garden. Cut back old foliage in later winter/early spring to make way for new growth and flowers.
