Description

I have this wonderful plant in the perennial borders at Perch Hill. It has amazing, ruffled green flowers and lasts at least 3 weeks in a vase.

It's the texture of these flowers, as well as the colours which make these such exceptional spring-flowering plants. You can grow them in pots – as a collection – in the middle of your table, or plant them in the garden and pick the odd flower from there. They love a bit of light shade.

Care Tips

Easy to establish and they will come back year after year giving much needed early season colour in containers and borders.
