Peony shoots are surging upwards, red and rubbery; downy alchemilla
mollis leaves are appearing from bare soil; and, after a long wait, due to cold weather, the first green potato foliage is pushing through the compost in its raised bed.
Many make excellent permanent edging, such as Alchemilla
mollis, Bergenia cordifolia 'Purpurea' and Saxifraga x urbium.
To cover bare soil, use ground-huggers such as alchemilla
, hardy geraniums, bugle, heuchera and epimedium to create a woven tapestry of flowers and foliage.
Other good choices include Alchemilla
mollis, hardy geraniums and Rudbeckias, while long-lived static perennials which form clumps more slowly, include astilbes, euphorbia and Sedum spectabile.
There are some zingy yellow highlights to catch the eye as well - Verbascum Gainsborough, frothy lime-green flowers of Alchemilla
mollis and Euphorbia characias - and then I'd suggest putting in some citrusy spots of orange courtesy of Geum Totally Tang T erine.
