Astrantia

Astrantia thrive in woodland gardens and in shaded and partial shaded beds and borders. They are fully hardy and like a moist fertile soil. Once established they will gradually spread. They require no staking and will flower for a long spell especially if not in too warm a spot. They may well flower later in the season if cut back after the first flush and they combine beautifully with Actaea, Geraniums and Heuchera. The lovely flowers are great dried too!

Galium odoratum

{About}
We were asked for sweet woodruff so often that we now grow it. Mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen at Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.
