In my garden in N. Wales this is one of the few plants, let alone alpines, that often has flowers throughout the year. This winter (2016-17) the type form with yellow=lipped cream flowers (as opposed to the form with purple lipped, pink flowers often known as P, chamaebuxus 'Rhodoptera') has been in full flower throughout and now (beginning of March) is, as the photograph shows, covered in flowers. It is a very easy long-lived plant which fits well into any rock garden scheme, including a large trough.
