Hi!

Here some suggestions for the good companion plants list.

Ferns (as long as it isn4t bracken)
Bergenia
Thalictrum
Aquilegia
Spring flowering bulbs
Heuchera
Small Carexes (C. pendula can become a bit invasive though)
Pulmonaria
Ophiopogon
Liriope
Digitalis
Viola
Astilbe
Cimicifuga
Ligularia
Anemone





Underplantings:

Ajuga
Lysimachia nummularia
Lamium maculatum Cultivars (eg White Nancy)
Ranunculus ficarius


That4s all I can think of right now - if I remember more I4ll send it
through
