Shade and Woodland


Shady situations are not a problem. Many beautiful plants thrive here. Among the shade plants offered are Cardamine, Chelonopsis, Corydalis, Dicentra, Epimedium, Geranium, Luzula, Pulmonaria, Tellima and Vancouveria. We also offer a sizeable collection of ferns.

Shady areas are normally colourful in spring. At present we are experimenting with extending the season of flower with our collection of Hydrangeas, Astilbes which thrive in damp shade, Crocosmia, which is more shade tolerant than you would expect, and evergreen Carex cultivars to give a contrasting grassy texture.
