Suitable mixtures of indigenous species and cultivars

In certain spots a combination of indigenous vegetation in combination with horticultural cultivars may be applied. Traditional parks and public gardens, generally planted with cultivars, offer many situations to do so. Their atmosphere may lend itself perfectly to blend in with some wildoccuring indigenous species. Practical examples include: Lamium galeobdolon ‘Florentinum’ with Campanula trachelium and Doronicum plantagineumi Onoclea sensibilis with a cover of Adoxa moschatellina; Matteucia struthiopteris with Convallaria majalis or Hyacinthoides non-scripta. Genera such as Primula, Vinca, Polygonatum multiflorum, Pulmonaria, Geum rivale, Asperula odorata and Galium sylvaticum, ferns like Blechnum, Polypodium vulgare and Dryopteris, and many other species may effortlessly be combined with cultivars.
