Plant Details

Ideal ground cover for a shady area. Large, glossy, bronze-purple leaves with dense, upright spires of purple spring flowers. Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Catlin's Giant is perfect for covering large areas since it has bigger leaves and is particularly vigorous. It copes well with sun and shade and poor soils, but does not like to dry out.

Goes well with Vinca and Pulmonaria. 

Height: 25cm x 45cm

Common name(s): Bugle, Baby's Shoes, Thunder and Lightning, Dead Men's Bellows.

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
