Growing Omphalodes Cherry Ingram

This is a new introduction to the Burncoose catalogue after seeing how spectacularly this plant was growing in a new border at RHS Garden Rosemoor.

O. cappdocica ‘Cherry Ingram’ is a fully hardy evergreen perennial with rhizomatous roots and ovate to heart shaped leaves up to 4in long. In March this plant produces a multitude of terminal racemes of deep blue flowers which contrast well with its green leaves. The clumps and flowers are only about 10in tall and quickly carpet the ground.

This plant thrives in a well dug and improved border. After planting it is an idea to mulch around the plants to suppress other weed growth and preserve moisture. At Rosemoor the plants were thriving in full sun but partial shade does not inhibit their performance.

Clumps are easily split and divided in early spring.
