Buy Omphalodes cappadocica 'Cherry Ingram' navelwort: A stunning addition to the woodland floor or shady rockery.

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Spreading to form a clump of attractive evergreen foliage, this low-growing perennial is best loved for its loose clusters of larger than average (for an Omphalodes), deep blue flowers, which appear in early spring. 'Cherry Ingram' makes a stunning addition to the woodland floor or shady rockery, where it associates well with spring flowering bulbs, ferns and hostas.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leafmould, composted pine needles or garden compost when planting. Lift and divide congested colonies in spring.

Superb early colour

Looked fantastic in an old stone trough with a low going Hosta and Alyssum saxatile, facing East. The leaves and beautiful blue flowers came early and lasted a very long time. Would be good at a path edge. My favourite early flower at the moment (also like the early Pulsatilla but nervous of it as it is poisonous).

Where is the best place to plant omphalides - shade or sun- edge/border or in middle bed ?

Susie

These are happiest in a partially shaded spot, and as they are low-growing, I tend to plant them at the front of the border.
