Shady summer colours

shady triangle 11.6.13We’ve not paid the shady triangle a lot of attention so far this year. It’s coming into its own with lush green growth everwhere: the fatsia japonica is huge, the ferns are growing up high again, we had to cut back lamiums and green heuchera, and the clematis plants are growing strongly up our hazelwood pyramid.

It feels, though, like rather a lot of green. We’ve tried to encourage the bronzey-red heuchera, the purple aquilegia, but more recently, the foxglove, the antirrhinums from last year and the dusky pink ones we bought for this year have provided a bit of colour. Purples and dusky pinks seem to suit this area of almost full shade.
