Hacquetia epipactis


By Naoto

Hacquetia epipactis (Hacquetia epipactis (Hacquetia))

Personally, this may probably be the best companion plant for helleborus, but seems not so popular.....I love the contrast of the yellow centre and lime-green petals....

I think they are so pretty, would love to have a whole bed of them!
Am I right in saying they like damp shade. My shade is very dry.

Thanks for your comments!

I assume that hacquetias like to grow in the shady, damp spot but they're not really fast grower so need to be patient.....Mine is in the pot so I can move it to the sunny spot in the morning, then in the shady spot afternoon.....
