Pulmonarias, solomons seal, aquilegias, woodruff, myrrhis odorata, Silene fimbriata, Arum italicum, hellebores, (but not niger) grow in dry shade for me

Newts like a nice fat taddy as well. 

Privett hedge problem

If he's cut it back hard it should recover. Privet always recovers. There are times when I've regretted that but the goldfinches like to nest in it so that's OK

Early flowering plants for butterflies?

butterflies will be looking for the leaves of food plants for the larvae so they can lay eggs on them.

They are yes. 

I haven't heard of a patio version but there may be.

I agree re the pompoms Scott. For most plants not just paeonies.

All my tree paeonies are from seed, not so expensive like that but a bit 'could be anything' in colour as they have a tendency to cross. I've never had a red seedling from my red delavayi but my neighbour has from seed I gave him. I'm a bit peeved about that.

Most of mine are in some shade, the flowers last a bit longer there.

Ideas please

Corydalis? blue? carpeting? How do you get it to do that Verdun.

It dies every time I try.

Even when give a large chunk from a well established clump it only lasted a couple of years
