Arachniodes standishii

  • Pot size: 1 Litre
  • Plant size: 45cm (18in)
  • Growing condition: Full shade
  • Flowering season: N/A to N/A

Named after the nurseyman John Standish who imported it from Japan in the mid 1800s. I have longed to be able to offer this wonderful hardy fern, it is commonly called the upside down fern due to the pinnules having a look like the underside of a frond. Yellow-green evergreen fronds which slowly spread to form a clump. It has proved completely hardy.

Bluish pearly pink flowers. A nice form of this woodland toughy from the Old Rectory, Burghfield. Will seed around to a certain extent and thrive in pretty much the driest position. An incredibly useful Geranium, a great candidate for underplanting in shaded and wooded spots. Wonderful for natural or semi wild planting schemes.

Alchemilla mollis AGM

Alchemilla mollis AGM

5.25 (2 or fewer items) 4.80 (3 or more items)

Common as muck but brilliant for a tough spot. Plumes of lime green/yellow flowers in Summer. Wonderful for flower arranging and the leaves look magical with water droplets sitting on them. Very dry shade tolerant and resistant to deer and rabbits, plus the occasional football or foot.

Often used at the front of borders and complementing other flowering perennials (it looks stunning when planted with Geranium 'Rozanne'), Alchemilla can also be used most effectively to create an area of differing foliage colours and textures - it combines beautifully with small to medium sized ferns.

It will mildly seed around but it is just too useful to ignore! Cutting foliage and faded flower stems back in mid/late summer will produce a second flush of leaves and the odd flower.
