In this day of calorie-counting and cholesterol-watching, buttered popcorn isn't a luxury that we can often afford to give ourselves. So why not give your garden this decadent treat instead?

A charming little evergreen groundcover, it's mostly grown for its attractive foliage. Joined together in groups of three, the leaves form a pattern like a miniature green snowflake splashed with gold and chartreuse.

You can control the amount of gold that appears in the leaves by its placement -- if it gets more sun, the leaves will have more gold in them. If it's shadier, they'll be more chartreuse.

If the plant receives enough sun you'll receive a flush of 1" five-petaled yellow buttercup flowers in May -- even more butter on your popcorn!

It's fairly drought tolerant (if grown in the shade), but it will spread most readily in moist, partially-shaded areas.
