Frohnleiten Barrenwort is an underrated, easy-care perennial that thrives in low-light corners of a yard or outdoor space. This plant has some seriously stunning leaves. Heart-shaped bronze-colored foliage features pronounced bright green veining. Bright yellow flowers burst open in the spring and gently hover above the foliage. This shade-loving cultivar is a hybrid cross between E. perralderianum and E. pinnatum subsp. colchicum.

This plant has a bushy, mounded growth habit. The variegated foliage and delicate blooms look amazing in beds, borders, or as a groundcover. Use this plant in a rock garden to provide a leafy contrast against the hardscape or add variety to a perennial bed. This is a great plant for areas with an increased animal population because Barrenwort is deer- and rabbit-resistant. Frohnleiten Barrenwort grows as a perennial in USDA, growing zones 5 through 9.

Frohnleiten Barrenwort Care

Full shade is a must for Frohnleiten Barrenwort. Intense light will burn the delicate foliage, so place in a spot that receives up to 4 hours of light. Barrenwort is not very particular about soil quality, but it does prefer rich, acidic soil with good drainage. Water weekly to keep the soil damp but not soggy. This plant is drought-tolerant once it has had time to acclimate, but keeping it hydrated during a dry spell will support healthy growth.

Apply a slow-release fertilizer in the spring. Propagate Barrenwort through division in early spring or late summer. Trim back old growth in late winter to encourage more prolific blooms in the spring.

Frohnleiten Barrenwort Spacing

This plant is a mounded perennial that will grow 6 to 12 inches tall and 12 to 18 inches wide. Create a continuous planting by spacing Barrenwort plants 10 - 14 inches apart or leave more room so they can spread out.
