I have a whole island flower bed to fill and I was wondering if anyone has ever grown Crambe? I'm planning to have it in the middle, with perennial geraniums and some structural grasses around it to hide the base leaves from view.
Then interplant spring bulbs so there's always a little bit of colour.


The bed is in full sun all the time, and the soil is beautiful (if I may say so). Any help and suggestions are welcome!
