  • Flowering season: March to May

The native wood spurge, a very tough evergreen Euphorbia for any shady spot including dry soils under trees. Green leaves and yellow flowers in Summer. Makes a good looking ground cover. Poisonous and take care when handling Euphorbia, as the latex in the sap can be an irritant to the skin.

Galium odoratum

  • Pot size: 9cm
  • Plant size: 30cm (12in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: April to June



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.

Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.

  • Plant size: 45cm (18in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade

A native Iris that does well in dry soils in shade, quiet purplish and yellow flowers in Summer, but the real star quality is the pod of berries which split in Autumn revealing scarlet orange fleshy seeds. A rhizomatous spreader.

Myrrhis odorata

  • Pot size: 1 Litre
  • Plant size: 45cm (18in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: May to July



Sweet Cicely, fully deciduous. In Spring it produces soft, hairy, pale green leaves, and then later small heads of cow parsley type flowers. Brushing past it releases the sweet aniseed scent, and it is often used in the preparation of stewed fruit to reduce the amount of sugar needed. A must for the herb or wild garden.

Reportedly needing moisture but grows well in dry shade, though best with semi-shade.
