Very useful ground cover for shade. Has
bright-blue, forget-me-not flowers in April
and May. Large, heart-shaped, green leaves
help suppress weeds in summer. Other
varieties have foliage striped or spotted with white or cream. I prefer the simple green.
Height 45cm. Spread 60cm. (The text here is the property of Gardens Illustrated © 2015.)
Plant care Best grown in moisture-retentive soil in partial shade or full shade. Large clumps can be lifted and divided in early spring or autumn if they outgrow their allotted space.
Pest and diseases Generally problem free, but watch out for slugs and snails.
Comments Will self-seed to cover vacant ground under trees and shrubs.
