Porteranthus trifoliatus (bowman’s root)
Porteranthus trifoliatus (bowman’s root) (formerly know as Gillenia trifoliata). It is an Ontario native perennial plant that has masses of white star-like flowers on the red stems that resemble the flowers of the annual, Gaura. It provides a frothy filler in a part shade garden and looks great even after flowering. In the fall the disease free foliage turns shade of burgundy.
