This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    From amongst the evergreen rosettes of pale green or grey-green leaves, upright stems emerge in spring topped with showy clusters of pink and white blooms. These hardy garden auriculas are perfect for the front of a mixed, herbaceous or cottage garden border where they are happiest in reliably moist, humus-rich soil. They also make excellent additions to a potted display, especially when underplanted with spring flowering bulbs.

  • Garden care: Divide large clumps after the plant has flowered, preferably during a wet spell.
