When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Gillenia trifoliata

It’s really hard to capture how delicate this is and how it moves. Lovely for a shady corner and the autumn colour is 👌 #gilleniatrifoliata

Did you mention shade?! 😆 I’m always looking for good plants for shade...although mine is quite often very dry. 😕

This gets a little early morning sun but that is all. It wants damp but free draining soil 🤔 Adding some leaf mould will help 👍 @mulberry

It looks quite shrubby, but RHS says it’s a perennial? Thanks for the tips! 😊

It is. It completely dies down in the winter. 🍂 @mulberry

I have this Hilly! It’s in the bed on the garden side of the low wall bordering the breakfast room patio. Mine gets some shade and it’s doing really well. One of my favourite perennials 😍 @mulberry

I’m going to have to keep my eyes peeled for it. Garden centre has been a bit hit or miss lately... @jacaranda

You can buy it online from Crocus, Hilly. I’ve bought lots of plants from them. Excellent mail order service and my go-to site for things I can’t find in the garden centres 👍 www.crocus.co.uk @mulberry

I think I’ve used them before, although I’ve found all the plants I’ve ordered online lately have only been available in very small pots...this is not good when you’re impatient like me! 😂

I ordered my last lot from Ballyrobert as they had the best value postage I’ve found so far. 👍🏻 @jacaranda

It's a fabulous plant isn't it Isabel. I only came across it a few years ago but it gets better every year @AcornBank

It's worth looking out for Rachel. If you look at my other photo you'll see how lovely it is in autumn too @rachelbrooks

It is gorgeous isn't it Rachel. I gather it is supposed to be upright. Mine isn't. It flops but it does so very beautifully 😊😊@rachelbrooks

Apparently this is an "erect perennial that may need staking". Or not...as in my garden. #autumn-colours
