This choice Chinese perennial is related to our native Ginger or Asarum and Saruma being an anagram of Asarum shows that even taxonomists are not above the occasional botanical hijink..  Felty heart shaped foliage bronze when young and half inch yellow flowers right away in spring continues to bloom through the summer.  These succeeds nicely in Chicago which seems like Siberia to us softies here in the PNW.  This is easy..
