I've got G.renardii in full sun Fairy

Geraniums are good though, G sanguneum if you want natives but macrorrhizum makes a lovely spread. Some of the Hypericums as well. H. androsaemum, (Tutsan) and H. perforatum, perforate st johns wort all grow in shade here, also Lamium album, white dead nettle

Is it in the ground or a pot? I don't think it's a lime hater. It's one I have resisted thinking it unlikely to thrive here beacuse our soil is too dry and maybe not totally hardy (the plant that is, not the soil). and maybe a little unreliable generally.

I'll see if I can find some pics

I've never heard of it and found nothing on a search which I'm sure you'd already done.

Have you got a photo?

The variegated white honesty makes a ggod show.

re wishbone's suggestion of strategic pruning. Raising the conopy, ie removing some lower branches, makes a lot of difference to what you can grow.

Has anyone mentioned astrantias?
