Wordless Wednesdays: Favourite plants for a Dry & Shady Corner!

Hurray! It is official:  it is Springtime!!! 

Birds are singing, flowers are blooming, drawings and masterplans are piling up on my desk...(!!!) and days are getting longer!

Projects are getting more and more exciting and while I was completing the final planting plan for one of my latest design in London, I tought you might love to have an early peak at some of the perennials selected for few shady, dry spots (a quite common condition in London town gardens). Here they are:

Vinca minor: a sweet, reliable, free-flowering perennial
which will be happy in a sunny spot as much as in a dry shade corner. Image source: Crocus

Helleborus × hybridus Harvington Shades of the NightBergenia OvertureGeranium phaeum
3 dark favourites: Helleborus x hybridus 'Harvington Shades Of The Night',
 Bergenia 'Overture', Geranium phaeum - Image sources: Crocus

Geranium phaeum AlbumVinca minor f. alba Gertrude JekyllHelleborus × hybridus Double Ellen White
...and three candid options: Geranium phaeum 'Album', Vinca minor f.alba 'Gertrude Jekyll',
 Helleborus x hybridus 'Double Ellen White' - Image sources: 'Crocus'

I hope you enjoyed this little peak to one of my latest Plant-Palettes. You can find few more here.

Is any of your favourite plants mentioned in this post? And what is the trickiest spot of your garden? 
Let me know and I might feature it in one of the next posts!
Wishing you a lovely week, 



  1. I was very impressed with this. Everything is very open with clear classification.

  2. I love the purple ones... I also have some... Love your story on the blog..
