The Native Bugle although not a rampant plant does spread fairly quickly. I'm wanting the plant to provide ground cover and flowers for a number of butterfly's that visit the garden.
I have a resident Holly Blue colony in the garden, I also get Orange Tips, Brimstone, Speckled Wood and Comma regularly every year. The Orange Tip and Brimstone crash through several times a day and I'm hoping to get them to pop in and stay for a while. I also want to plant as far as possible British Native wild flowers as part of what is starting to become a very nice country cottage garden.
Being very much into wildlife, specifically birds and mammals I'm hoping for a wildlife garden using native plants as far as possible.
Our british native Bugle is proving to be a big challenge, one I want to crack this year even if it means taking wild plant material or seed which is an option I have as a very last desperate choice.
If it brings in wildlife especially those butterfly's listed here and others it can be as rampant as it likes. I'm also planting, Cuckoo Flower, Betony, Fleabane and Red Valerian this year.
