Unusual in dwarf phlox (shade)

Exactly, Vincent! It gets light from the east for part of the day, though, so it isn't full shade.

That would be just right to brighten up a shady corner Spritz, the bright blue flowers look a treat! :o)

I will have a look for this. Seems ideal. I was in the garden centre today, not one thing for shade that floated my boat.

What a shame! I've been on a shade plant hunt recently after a marathon clear-out of Lamium galeobdolon, and I've found quite a few. I also propagated some Geranium macrorrhizum, and they've started to flower happily in quite deep shade.

I like G. macro. but the smell is terrible when you handle it. I will widen my net, most garden centres around here have all the same stuff. Need some specialist nurseries.

I absolutely agree with you on the smell of the leaves, Vincent. I almost have to put a clothes peg on my nose when I touch the plants! lol.

I also have them in quite deep shade cant remember if mine is a named one.
Saw a nice white one at Harrogate flower show but bbalked at paying £5 for a 9cm pot.

So there are different ones around. That would be nice, but not at that price!
