My muse has deserted me ...

Hello Sara, not sure that it's the same but I have a woodlandly bit underneath some mature beech trees. I've found that spring bulbs, ferns, cyclamen, campion, mallow, pulmonaria, bugle, wallflowers seem to do ok here. Looks like you've got a lot of dappled light there.

I've not grown them but maybe a dicentra bleeding heart might do ok as well

Hi again, sorry I don't know, after 3 years I'd be tempted to give up on them given the size of the leaves. Not ever heard of a blind lupin, but maybe it's possiblity

My Lupins seem to best in partial shady spot, where are yours?
