Year after year I continue to be impressed by this genus of woodland perennial. Not that we have lots of them, we only have two in the garden but they reliably come back in the spring (as you'd expect from a hardy perennial) and they get bigger and better each year.
We've referred to this plant as 'Cousin It' before on a previous blog post but once it has fully leafed it has no resemblance to this nickname whatsoever.
Sinfully lovely and leafy Syneilesis...
Cultural requirements? Dappled shade to shade, in a moisture retentive spot that doesn't get waterlogged either.
Anyway, as an aside I just realised neither of us have posted anything about our garden for three weeks now, yikes!! The last post we made about our own garden was the one on the fourth of May, oops!
It's been such a hectic, incredibly busy, but fantastic past three weeks I must say. With the Cornwall trip and spending a few days covering the recently concluded Chelsea Flower Show, both events within close range between each other too (plus our own garden to sort out), there's so much material to write about. And although we have written some coverage already about both topics, there is still a backlog of subjects about them that I'd prefer to feature as separate posts. No doubt they will get featured eventually, gradually and interspersed between other subjects, no longer chronological but it will still happen...
But I thought it would be nice to bring it back again to the very root of this blog which is about our garden, even if it's just a short one (for now anyway).
