These diminutive wildflowers are charming, shaped like an open bowl in white, lavender, purple, or pink. They get their name from the evergreen three-part leaves, with a shape reminiscent of the human liver, pointed or rounded on their ends and often with a deep purple cast. In the wild the plants grow in deep leaf litter in deciduous woodlands. Liverleaf is excellent in shady rock gardens or woodlands where the soil is humus-rich.
