More Details

One of my favourite wild flowers which is definitely garden worthy for introducing (as plugs) into your lawn, in dappled shade under shrubs, trees and in the base of hedges.

I love it cut and arranged on its own, or in a jumble of wild flowers such as wild carrot, foxgloves and Ragged Robin. It flowers on and off for months.
