Alpines

Erodium macradenum (glandulosum)Erodium macradenum (glandulosum) is a charming long-blooming evergreen perennial alpine plant which forms a low tuft or mound of ferny olive-green leaves, effective as ground cover. Orchid-like flowers appear from late spring through to the autumn, in a soft lavender shade with deep violet-black spots or eyes. One of the hardiest Heron's bill species, asking only for the excellent drainage provided by a rock garden, gravel scree or alpine trough. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in spring. Foliage is quite fragrant. A cousin to the familiar Crane's Bill Geraniums. Received a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.
Primula vulgaris subsp. sibthorpiiPrimula vulgaris subsp. sibthorpii is actually a form of our native primrose found in the Balkans. A delightful little plant and so easy to grow. Starting to flower, and WOW, does it flower, from mid February this is one of the gems of the woodland garden. Not at all weak like some of the Primulas it is vigorous, low growing perennial and very tough and reliable. Large soft lilac-pink flowers with a distinct yellow eye. Ideal to grow as ground cover under deciduous trees and shrubs in any soil as long as the soil is not too dry.
