Broom - a lovely colourful splash to cheer the heart. Comes in all colours.

Bergenia is one of those plants we tend to ignore but a large clump can create a splash of colour in a tricky area.

And bluebells of course. They grow all along the cliffpath here so I am hoping to buy some English ones to have in the garden to grow alongside the snowdrops, daffs and crocus.

Camelia is a must for a spring garden, they infuse the garden with colour when most things are still dormant. Easy to grow - plant away from early morning sunlight. I was so pleased to find two mature plants already here when we moved in. I've now planted out the two I've had in pots for years, waiting for our move to go through.
Cordyline of course, tough, architectural and cheap. A good structural specimen to plant around.
