Plant for chalk soil
Plant for shade
An endearing little plant. The flowers open almost at ground level. Clusters of tiny yellow, fertile flowers surrounded by conspicuous olive green petal-like bracts appear well into spring. Flowers are followed by scalloped-edged green leaves.
Prefers a moist, fertile soil in partial shade but prefer a drier soil when dormant.
Height: 6 - 12 inches / 15 - 30cm
Spread: 6 - 12 inches / 15 - 30cm
AGM: The RHS Award of Garden Merit. Plants awarded an AGM are:
- excellent for ordinary use in appropriate conditions
- of good constitution
- essentially stable in form and colour
- reasonably resistant to pests and diseases
This is one of the plants I always look forward to seeing in spring. It's a real curiosity but so easy to grow.
