Woodland Anemone. To 12 cms. Lavender blue flowers in spring. Great woodland plant, semi shade best. Winter dormant.
(Snowdrops). 3 large (flowering size) bulbs-potted. Supposed to be the easiest and one of the nicest to grow with very large flower. Delightful in july/august for the first of the spring bulbs. Very good drainage, sun to part shade. Summer/autumn dormant.
(Burning Bush). Plants are 2 years old. Mature plants are up to 90 cms in height. Purple-mauve flowers with darker veins early summer, highly fragrant lemon scented leaves. A beautiful plant when in flower and a favourite of mine. Lovely as specimen plant where you can brush past it. Usually take 4 years to flower. Winter dormant.
To 45 cms. Compact and late flowering with large, fluffy, cornflower-like blue flowers late summer to autumn. Sun. Suits moist, sandy but well-drained soil, good drought tolerance. Not too wet in winter. Remove spent flowering stems to encourage additional blooms. Rock garden, front of border, cottage garden. Winter dormant.
(Bloodroot). Rare and seldom available, never enough of this plant. 15-30 cms. The single bloodroot leaf and double flower each rise on a separate stem, and at first the leaf completely enwraps the flower bud. The clear, white, many-petalled blossom may open before the leaf has completely unwrapped. The leaves are large, round and deeply cleft. On a smooth stalk a solitary double-white, grows beside a lobed basal leaf that often curls around the stalk. The flower opens in full sun and closes at night. Winter dormant.
