This blue cowslip produces a sea of bright blue funnel-shaped flowers from early to late spring held upright on erect stems. The mid to dark green lance-shaped leaves make a particularly attractive edging for paths and borders. Perfect groundcover for shady areas of the garden.

  • 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.
