Plant details

Blue cowslips have clusters of nodding blue flowers, which stand out well against plain green leaves. They look good growing with other early blue flowering plants, such as Brunnera and Omphalodes, or as a contrast with the yellow blooms of primroses and early daffodils. Plants make good trouble-free groundcover for moist shade, spreading slowly and requiring little care. 'Blaues Meer' is a lovely variety which freely producesbright blue blooms in spring.
