A stunning, evergreen species, native to Japan, with beautiful, white, starry flowers in autumn and rosettes of rounded, fleshy leaves marked in silver that eventually cover the ground with a solid mat of growth. Plants spread by fine, red stolons with little plantlets at the tips (although not invasive). Height 20 cm. Moist, well-drained soil in part to full shade although the plant is tolerant of poor soils. Perfect for a spot in a shady rock or woodland garden and an excellent choice for underplanting.
