    This piercing blue cowslip bears clusters of rich-blue funnel-shaped flowers from early to late spring and mid- to dark green leaves. Named after the woodland garden at Munstead Wood created by Edwardian plantswoman Gertrude Jeykll it is a particularly lovely groundcover plant for moist shady areas.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps every three to five years after flowering or in autumn. Cut back plants affected by mildew to the ground, water and feed - the plant will regenerate and produce new leaves later in the year.
