Vita Sackville West
Hyacinthoides hispanica White City--Widely used in both naturalized woodland settings and display gardens, this deer- and rodent-resistant naturalizer matures over the years, becoming increasingly more substantial and prolific. They impart a special look and feel to woodlands: kind of like a magical cross between a Wizard of Oz garden and a midsummer’s night dream.
A wonderful mix of colours from apricot to cafe-au-lait. Try planting it with tulips ‘La Belle Époque or ‘Apricot Beauty’. Wallflowers are one of my favourite spring flowers, in the most wonderful rich colours, with one of the best-ever scents. They also make superb cut flowers. We should all grow more.
