Brunnera

A first class genus - an invaluable and easy groundcover with attractive foliage, good in both borders and containers. The hairy, heart shaped leaves have wonderful markings and airy flower stems are held above the leaves in Spring. They combine brilliantly with other Spring flowering plants and have a wonderful role in supporting Summer flowering perennials too. Brunneras are happy in dry shade but if soil conditions are slightly damper, you will be rewarded with more luxuriant growth, more fabulous foliage. They really do offer extraordinarily good value for money.

In dry shade, consider partnering Brunnera with Iris foetidissima and Helleborus foetidus, whilst for a moister spot consider growing alongside ferns.

A medium growing form with white flowers with pink calyx. Very tolerant of dry soils and conditions. One of the most and best evergreen of the forms. Offers Autumn brightness as the leaves colour. Makes a fantastic dense ground cover even in dry shade. We have it growing at the base of a hornbeam hedge in a very thin soil and it is very happy.

Omphalodes cappadocica 'Cherry Ingram' AGM

A blue-chip and striking Spring woodlander, comparatively large blue flowers in masses in Spring and possibly the odd one in Autumn too. Slowing spreading to form a mat of foliage. Evergreen and quite charming. Likes woodsy conditions and combines beautifully with spring bulbs and ferns. I have seen it used as a very stylish underplant in a formal courtyard garden too.

Bluish pearly pink flowers. A nice form of this woodland toughy from the Old Rectory, Burghfield. Will seed around to a certain extent and thrive in pretty much the driest position. An incredibly useful Geranium, a great candidate for underplanting in shaded and wooded spots. Wonderful for natural or semi wild planting schemes.
