Rodgersia

Roscoea

Roscoea

Exotic looking plants with stunning flowers. We have what may be considered an extreme number of Roscoea, but we have grown them outside for a number of years and find we can have different species in flower from April to October, something very few other woodland genera can offer. We find them easy in a shady spot with a moist but not boggy soil. Plant deeply and avoid keeping them in pots overwinter. They can bea little slow to reappear in Spring.

Viola

Viola

The Viola odorata forms are all single, easy growing, for a shady spot in the garden. The new Devon violets are much better than the old cut flower clones, not virus infested nor prone to red spider mite. Wonderful in a wild or woodland garden where they will happily seed about.
