Helleborus - Hellebores

Helleborus is a fabulous genus of Spring flowering garden plants, many are natural tough European woodlanders. Hellebores are like many members of Ranunculaceae, they have a huge range of flower colours and forms and hybridise freely. Other members of this family, like Clematis, Anemone and Delphinium, all show the same plasticity of flower form and colour. Helleborus are often very tolerant of dry shade conditions and associate beautifully with snowdrops, Erythronium, Primula, Pulmonaria and Tiarella. The genus Helleborus grows in two forms, those forming stems such as Helleborus foetidus and argutifolius and those growing from a rootstock with flowering or leaf stems. Helleborus foetidus is amongst the most tolerant of very dry soils thriving on dry road cuttings with things such as juniper.

Harmful if eaten and may irritate the skin.

Galium odoratum

Galium odoratum

4.30 (2 or fewer items) 3.50 (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 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.
