Leopard’s bane amazes me as it stays green through the winter. It’s one of the first plants to bloom in the spring. It grows while the snow melts around it. When we moved into our house a few years ago, I found some dwarfed, barely surviving plants growing under thick bushes in an abandoned house next door. When transplanted, this survivor leopard’s bane took off like wildfire. Three years later it surrounds my entire house in a sea of yellow in the spring.
