Shadowy spot seeks hardy flowers for safe fun

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 23:01

I'm surprised you couldn't get the euonymus to go if you mean those variegated ones

Is this all Campanula Portenschlagiana?

Nothing a good dose of weedkiller won't sort out Charley. 

I don't think it's as bad as the two you mention unless it's gone in an amongst the roots of other plants or rockery stones etc. There are a lot of very attractive and very invasive campanulas

The pompoms are alliums but we couldn't decide which one. They're much heavier looking than 'Purple Sensation'

Yes, that's us

Ivy if it can't escape to the rest of the garden

Plant advice

I find Symphytum officinale, comphrey does that job very well but maybe that's closer to a weed than you want to go. Iris pseudocorus is good as well. and Filipendula ulmaria, meadow sweet. One of the willowherbs, Epilobium hirsutum has a lovely pink flower and spreads nicely.

The comphrey and the willowherb are seeders as well which can be a disadvantage in the rest of the garden. Especially the willowherb that has windblown seeds

It you want something shrubby;  willow, cut back regularly if you don't want anything tall, and the coloured stemmed dogwoods will cope with inundation.

I'd kill/remove the nettles for a start though

Those two names are similarly unpronounceable and they are often wrongly labelled.

If you check on the RHS website or in the big RHS book you'll see the difference,
