Granny bonnets come in a wide range or colours from delicate pastels to bold purples. They have an attractive lacy fern like foliage - think a large maiden hair fern leaf. They are popular in a cottage garden for self- seeding and as they prefer partial shade they look lovely underneath shrubs. (They will grow in full sun too)
They look pretty and interesting in a vase.

Granny bonnets are easy to grow. They do best in moist, rich, well drained soil in light shade but can adapt to a variety of conditions (including full sun). Water regularly in warmer months.
