Easy in semi or full shade even in very dry soils, it won't appreciate conifer dry but very little does.

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.

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.
