Monty Don selects two beautiful flowering perennials to add instant colour to borders in light or dappled shade. Watch this short video clip and you’ll see why he’s chosen them: Thalictrum delavayi, with its airy froth of small mauve flowers, and the elegant white-flowered Japanese anemone Anemone x hybrida ‘Whirlwind’.
