Tall spikes of bell-shaped white or greenish-white flowers from May to July above rosettes of hairy scalloped emerald-green leaves. Fringe cups make excellent semi-evergreen groundcover for a moist shady shrub border or woodland garden. Best sheltered from cold drying winds they're a particularly valuable choice for difficult areas of dry shade.

  • Garden care: Remove the faded flower spikes once the plant has finished flowering. Lift and divide congested colonies in spring and apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or compost leaf mould around the base of the plant.
