Western Boykinia grows in moist woods or along streams from the Santa Monica mountains up through both the coast ranges and Sierra Nevada mountains into Washington and east to Montana. A very nice perennial with clean green foliage and a nice spray of white flowers in mid-summer into fall. Great to mix with Heuchera. Ribes and maybe ferns in the shady entrance way that needs help. Each plant grows about one foot wide and one foot tall.
