In early spring, each flowering stem produces 2-4 small, deep blue flowers with small white centers. Its leaves are grooved, semi-evergreen and medium green, are veined, with fine hairs and oval to heart in shape, and rapidly pointed at the tip.
This plant is fairly tolerant of considerable shade and rather dry soil, but best results will be obtained in a place with light shade and average moisture. A place in full sun is not recommended as its foliage burns easily.
Propagation is simple as the plant is easily divided. Divide the roots in autumn.
