6 best plants for May

These blooms are the essence of early summer

1. Iris 'Holden Clough'

Golden flowers overlaid with purple-brown veining make this one of the most striking and unusual colour combinations of any iris. It thrives in damp conditions.

2. Melanoselinum decipiens

A fabulous architectural plant from Madeira with angelica-like leaves and clusters of pink flowers on top of a sturdy, banded woody stem. Takes two or three years to flower, then dies. Great for insects.

3. Silene dioica 'Flore Pleno'

Flowering prolifically almost all season, the double-flowered red campion is undemanding and very rewarding. Quite common in old Irish gardens, but not so widely grown in the UK.

4. Hosta 'Platinum Tiara'

A vigorous small-leaved hosta with a white margin. All varieties grow well in the damp and low light of west Ireland. Perfect for difficult spots under trees and in pots.

5. Caulophyllum thalictroides

Small woodland plant with ferny, thalictrum-like foliage and interesting star-like greenish flowers. In autumn the leaves light up dark corners, turning yellow to burnt orange.

6. Brunnera macrophylla 'Spring Yellow'

A handsome plant with small, blue forget-me-not-like flowers against variegated foliage, providing interest from spring to autumn.
