Galium odoratum

Galium odoratum

4.50 (2 or fewer items) 3.95 (3 or more items)

{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.

Geranium nodosum

Geranium nodosum

4.95 (2 or fewer items) 4.85 (3 or more items)

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.

Omphalodes cappadocica 'Cherry Ingram' AGM

Omphalodes cappadocica 'Cherry Ingram' AGM

5.45 (2 or fewer items) 4.95 (3 or more items)

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.

Geranium x cantabrigiense 'St Ola'

5.45 (2 or fewer items) 4.95 (3 or more items)

One of the very few evergreen Geraniums for the woodland garden. Short growing it forms a ground cover with pure white flowers over most of the Summer. A hybrid raised by Alan Bremnar in the Orkneys.

Once established it's very tolerant of soils that dry out in Summer in shade.
