    This perennial earned its name by remaining green through the holidays. Makes for an attractive addition to shady areas, including along walls or foundations, and can help with erosion control on slopes when planted in masses. 

    Although it does not spread to form a continuous groundcover, its fountain-like clumps will increase in size over time.
