This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This attractive, early-flowering perennial will help liven up the woodland floor in spring. It forms a good-sized clump of slender, pointed leaves, which are generously daubed in silver. The flaring bell-shaped flowers form in clusters, and are held above the foliage on upright stems, opening pink, but turning blue as they age. This, coupled with the silvery foliage, which may be retained during milder winters and shows some resistance to powdery mildew, creates a very colourful effect.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps every three to five years after flowering or in autumn. Cut back plants affected by mildew to the ground, water and feed - the plant will regenerate and produce new leaves later in the year.
