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.

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.
