This streamside plant sports a flat umbel of little white flowers, but the large hand-shaped leaves are its finest feature. Boykinia needs moist soil, so it is a good option in an area you already water, or perhaps next to a pond or other water feature. Give it some room to expand! Developed colonies serve as attractive groundcover. This plant enjoys richer soils than many of our natives, and can benefit from a yearly top-dressing of compost. 


This plant takes advantage of disturbed soils, meaning it can be used as a streambank stabilizer. Good companions include sneezeweed, indian hemp, streamside daisy, blue vervain, monkeyflower, and Canada violet.
