The exquisite azure blue flowers with white centres are held aloft from fresh heart shaped evergreen leaves in early spring. Omphalodes cappadocica gently scrambles around to form a green carpet in your partially shaded areas. H 25cm x S 40 cm

Omphalodes cappadocica


 Also known as Navelwort, this compact, flowering perennial will greatly enhance partially shaded areas of your garden. ‘Small but mighty’ sprays ofbeautiful azure blue flowers with white eyes will blossom during the spring. The flowers are borne on short stems rising from the finely haired evergreen leaves. The flowers resemble forget-me-nots (they both belong to the Boraginaceae family) but are larger at an approximate width of 5mm.

O.cappadocia will be happy in most moist but well drained soils but loves a rich, fertile woodland soil where it will sit happily amongst other woodland plants.
