I bought 6 plugs three years ago and planted them in a lightly shaded area with excellent humus rich loamy soil, none appeared to thrive and all turned in to soup pretty quickly. Crocus refunded the purchase. I bought 6 more plants in February as I wanted to persevere as they would be ideal to fill gaps in the garden. I planted three in the same place I had tried before and three in full sun ( a bit of a joke in Aberdeen ;-), within a month the ones planted in the shade had turned a nasty off green colour and were clearly sick, the three planted in full sun have doubled in size and are flowering. I dug up the three sick plants and transplanted them in to full sun, still not 100% but they are recovering their colour slowly are growing and are starting to flower..... I would say a good buy consider carefully where you plan to plant them. I realise full sun is a different proposition in South Devon to North East Scotland.

Very good for ground cover in a shady area. Spreads quickly.
