PACHYPHRAGMA MACROPHYLLUM

Gardens Illustrated Magazine - - Dig In | Plantsman's Favourites -

In­sects and but­ter­flies adore this plant, as seem­ingly do many gar­den­ers, be­cause sud­denly ev­ery­body is ask­ing us about it. Its pop­u­lar­ity is in part down to the rave re­views it’s re­ceived from grow­ers and gar­den­ing magazines. Praise that, in our opin­ion, is en­tirely jus­ti­fied. Its long-flow­er­ing, tooth­wort­like, white flow­ers, held above rounded, fresh-green fo­liage, are a beau­ti­ful sight, and it forms highly at­trac­tive al­mostev­er­green ground­cover for shady ar­eas. And if that wasn’t enough it also has a de­light­ful scent. We adore it too. Height 40cm. Ori­gin Cau­ca­sus, Turkey. Con­di­tions Moist but well-drained soil; part to full shade. Har­di­ness RHS H7. Sea­son Spring – sum­mer.
