Co­ry­dalis temuli­foila ‘Choco­late Stars’

EDP Norfolk - - Garden Guide -

This is a great lit­tle peren­nial for a shaded or a par­tially shaded spot in the gar­den. In early spring its ser­rated leaves are a won­der­ful choco­late brown which makes it worth grow­ing for them alone; from March to May these are com­ple­mented by a suc­ces­sion of pale laven­dervi­o­let tubu­lar flow­ers. By early sum­mer the leaves fade to green but if grown in a cool shady spot don’t die back like some Co­ry­dalis va­ri­eties. ‘Choco­late Stars’ will cope with sun but will need more wa­ter than when grown in the shade.
