Maiden flower, Patrinia triloba, is a woodland perennial, native to Japan. It forms a carpet of astrantia-like green leaves, from which clusters of small yellow flowers appear on short stems in summer. It’s perfect for filling gaps in a partially shaded or woodland border, or adding a splash of colour to a shady corner.
