Saxifraga

Saxifrages like moist semi shaded and shaded conditions - although not waterlogged. They are a group of Autumn flowering perennials with fleshy leaves and lots of small splendid flowers held above the leaves in rather lovely clouds. Even when not in flower Saxifrages can make a stunning ground cover or planting at the front of a border.

The native wild form of this easy and very useful evergreen fern. Strap shaped, long undivided fronds giving the plant it's common name Hart's (deer) Tongue fern. Grows better on alkaline to neutral soils. Happy in damp shade but also in dry shade once established. This fern works brilliantly with other ferns, hostas and bergenias.

Galium odoratum

Galium odoratum

4.95 (2 or fewer items) 4.45 (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.

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.
