This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A really pretty addition to the late spring and early summer garden, this variable, semi-evergreen perennial looks wonderful when planted in drifts or swathes. The foliage forms a basal rosette from which softly hairy stems arise bearing clusters of bell shaped, soft yellow flowers. Wonderful in a woodland garden or other naturalised setting.

  • Garden care: Generally, problem-free but do ensure that the ground does not get too dry, especially where the plant is growing in full sun.
