Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom
I am trying to find plants that would be suitable for a woodland environment and that will take over when the spring flowering plants have become dormant. They would be dormant themselves during the spring and start to appear after the spring plants have finished (Hostas are an example). Also plants that are happy to co-exist with the spring plants, be of a similar size and not be overwhelmed when the bluebells collapse all over them (Heuchera are an example). The overall consideration is that the plants should not strike a discordant note in the woodland situation and can cope with the shady conditions. I know from experience that the wealth of knowledge and goodwill among the GoY members is almost infinite and I hope someone will spare the time to help me in this search.
