Plants needed for heavily shaded area under fir trees

You might find G. macrorrhizum listed by cultivar name only. 'Bevan's variety' and Ingwersen's variety are a couple in my mind. Also a white one that is less robust and a clear pink. I use them a lot under trees and shrubs.

GCs probably think we can't cope with a word like macrorrhizum

Wait a minute Graham. I haven't had spring yet

Tree paeonies looked good yesterday and Doronicum pardalianches. and one of the Roasa rugosas is just opening.

Lamium Mrs G. I like the one at the back.

Reminded by Will's G. phaeum, Geranium macrorrhizum is a good one as well and if you're willing to risk it, green alkanet, Pentaglossis sempervirens, a bit invasive though.

Too early to see what happens but I have a mass self-seeding of Eryngium giganteum under a group of pines. They look very healthy as foliage plants and can stand the dry
