Stray from the traditional shade-loving favourites and jazz up a dull corner with something a little bit different, like this lovely Roscoea cautleyoides! Shady planting schemes needn’t be bland, and this cheery treasure is just the job for adding that much-needed splash of colour. Ideal for a woodland border or shady rockery, the buttery-yellow orchid-like blooms stand out on upright stalks above neat clumps of blade-like foliage, illuminating a dull space like a little ray of sunshine!

This unusual plant isn’t commonly available in the UK but, bit it’s actually very robust and easy to grow. Thriving happily in a cool climate and returning for a perennial display every summer, you can enjoy this charmer popping up in your garden year after year. It looks wonderful when combined with leafy shade dwellers to introduce a dash of pizzazz, or mingled it among pastel-coloured flowers.

Please note that Roscoea are sensitive tuberous roots and need to be planted deep enough as soon as they arrive so they can establish.
