Geranium 'Rozanne' AGM

  • Pot size: 1 Litre
  • Plant size: 30cm (12in)
  • Growing condition: Sun-partial shade
  • Flowering season: June to October

Not entirely our normal fare but simply a superb wallichiana hybrid. Large clear blue white-eyed flowers with purple veins, in masses all Summer and often into early November. Typically floppy. When happy in a good fertile soil, with some sun, it can make 60cm tall and spread to 80cm or so, and will be incredibly beautiful for many months.

Voted RHS Plant of the Century at Chelsea 2013.

Gillenia trifoliata AGM

  • Pot size: 9cm
  • Plant size: 60cm (24in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: June to July

A plant that has become increasingly popular as gardeners recognise its quiet beauty. White star flowers that have a fluttering butterfly quality about them, reddish stems and calyxs, followed by berries and coloured foliage in Autumn. A semi-shaded well drained spot will have this flowering most of the Summer. Use to the front of a shade border to fully appreciate its beauty. A rhizomatous perennial, that is gradually clump forming.

Galium odoratum

Galium odoratum

4.50 (2 or fewer items) 3.95 (3 or more items)


A very useful groundcover for tough, dry shady conditions.

A 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 in the walled garden at NT Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously, but it is a plant that will survive the toughest of dry shady conditions.
