Korea. In 2007, when we installed our new woodland garden, we included many lilaceous shade lovers. One of them is this graceful clump-forming perennial. Disporum flavens is rhizomatous in nature but has always been polite. The slender fleshy stems are slightly nodding at their tips where pendant flowers in sets of 1 to 3 dangle. In the fall, attractive, glossy black fruits appear. The narrow lance-shaped leaves which are found toward the base of the plant measure up to six inches in length.
