Reviews
Saw this in Bulgarian woodland and again at Bodnant garden in Wales and Beth Chatto was the only place I could buy a plant...it is astonishingly beautiful and is growing in a dismally cold damp area of my garden...a most welcome plant and I look forward to this Caucasian invasion happening. Thank you Beth Chatto gardens for growing it so beautifully.

  • Why has my plant been cut back?

    Traditionally the mail order plant season has run from October to March. This was because many plants would dormant during this time of the year and foliage would either be reduced or absent, making them easier to post.

    Now mail order runs all year round and thus requires us to maybe cut back some of your plants, particularly from April to October. Plants with tall flowering stems and lots of foliage may lose a great deal of water in transit and cutting back helps reduce this stress. Cutting back will not harm your plants but will help in their establishment by promoting new root and shoot growth once planted.
