Does any one no a plant for a shady dry place



Hi roselover,
Give us a clue what you like in plants,
so many plants like dry shady growing area's but as i say it depends on your likes in plants? And soil conditions.

A lot of the plants I grow are shady ladies. There are lots. look at the RHS shade plants list to get a good list.
but to get you going,
some ferns, pulmonaria, smilacena, saxifrages, some heucheras, lots of spring and autumn flowering bulbs, ajuga, pachysandra, pachyphragma. [I grow all these under a beech tree/hedge]

I found some pulmonarias tended to get mildew in summer if they got too dry so hasten slowly with those just in case.

Air circulation might have been the problem SBG. I have some now under a conifer hedge and it doesn't happen to them.
