Pacific NW. The ‘deer fawn spot’ pattern on the broad fleshy leaves lack the purple markings of E. oregonum but is incredibly beautiful as mottled jade. Normally located in cool  forest edges and riparian sites, all do well in a shade cool perennial border with Trillium, Dicentra, tulips, at the base of leggy shrubs such as rhododendrons. Needs ample late winter-early spring rain for mid April-early May blooming.
