    This vigorous, astonishingly hardy, evergreen climber has extremely fragrant flowers which can vary from white through pale green to pale purple, and appear in clusters in spring and early summer. Much later, right into early winter, very large, pinkish-purple sausage-shaped fruits ripen. In late winter and spring these split open revealing the seeds held in a mass of edible white jelly. This beautiful, vigorous, evergreen climber has dark green leathery leaves which are composed of three oblong, pointed leaflets held on strong twining stems enabling it to climb. It is native to central China where it grows in scrubby thickets and mountain slopes and was introduced into the UK by Earnest Wilson in 1907 and is useful as a vigorous evergreen climber, suitable for climbing over structures or on trellis. The etymological root of the latin name Holboellia is named after the Danish ornithologist Carl Peter Holboell (1795-1856). Coriacea is from Latin meaning 'leather’, in reference to this climber’s leaves. . ... Learn More

    From the ramonda-like rosettes of this tiny salvia relative arise many spikes holding dark violet-blue flowers which are most attractive to butterflies. Ideal in wall, trough or rock garden, this alpine gem is seldom seen, although it is an easy plant for the rock garden or for edging in a moist border. It looks particularly good when growing in the cracks between rocks, where the roots can search for cool and moist conditions. ... Learn More


  8. HORSE CHESTNUT (Aesculus hippocastanum)

    In spring the spectacular trusses of pink and white flowers hang between the huge distinctive leaves, which have five or more long leaflets. The common name "horse-chestnut" originated from the erroneous belief that the tree was a kind of chestnut, (it is only distantly related), and that that eating the fruit cured horses of chest complaints despite this plant being poisonous to horses. In Britain and Ireland, the gorgeous, very large and highly polished seeds (when freshly-collected) are used for the popular children's game conkers, when the seeds are drilled, threaded onto string and used to hit another's "conker" until one breaks, they are the "loser"! The large seeds are said to repel spiders although many do not believe these claims! This lovely flower is the symbol of the city of Kiev, capital of Ukraine. Seeds are best planted about 6-8 cm. deep after they have dried and shrivelled a little. They will sprout within 3 to 6 months as a rule. ... Learn More

    This lovely poppy from the highlands of Mexico is a perennial whose leaves resemble those of Eschscholzia, being finely divided into many grey-green linear lobes. The flowers are solitary yellow cups formed from four overlapping petals, 5-7 cm across, vaguely resembling the tulip. The long thin fruits are also reminiscent of Eschscholzia. In nature it is typically found at elevations of 1500-2000 meters in the Chihuahuan Desert and south into central Mexico, where it favours rocky habitats, ... Learn More



    This elegant plant, perfect for the rockery or trough, forms neat spreading mats of tiny, bright green ferny leaves, topped with dense clusters of fragrant, crisp white flowers from spring to autumn. Even out of flower, the plants are attractive, as it is an evergreen. A delightful little plant from the European high Alps. ... Learn More



    This stately flower is distinguished from the common UK bluebell by its paler, larger, blue-striped flowers, more erect flower stems, broader leaves, and blue anthers, the common bluebell having creamy-white ones. A strong, robust plant, it comes from the woodlands and moist meadows of Spain and North Africa where it forms large clumps. It is a very effective bulb for planting under shrubs in garden borders or in woodland gardens, where in spring, strong, erect spikes of bell-shaped flowers appear. They can tolerate a wide range of soils but refer humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil. Care should be taken to prevent this species from hybridising with the less-vigorous British native Bluebell. ... Learn More



    Ironically, this is a much better garden plant than the British native "Bluebell". It is also an exquisite blue, paler than the native species, with a remarkable ability to complement and enhance the effect of just about any other flower colour it comes near. Whilst the native plant has flowers that lean to one side, this one is more symmetrical, much like a hyacinth, to which it is of course related. It provides colour and contrast to the woodland garden, border front, rock garden or even a wild/naturalized area, and is particularly effective when naturalized in large drifts under deciduous trees , or at the margins of shady woodland gardens. ...

    This truly rare and unique plant is a slow-growing species of Hydrangea, native to parts of Japan. It bears fascinating, nettle-like leaves with a serrated edge, and bears flat clusters of attractive pale mauve flowers. It makes a truly most handsome shrub, and although hardy, is best planted in a position with shelter from cold winds, ideally in sun or light dappled shade. Very few good, fertile tiny seeds collected. ... Learn More



    This very rare plant slowly forms a large shrub with pinnately-lobed, green hairy leaves. From July, the white flower are borne in large flat-topped cymes with neutral marginal flowers. Performing best in acid-neutral soil, this Crug collection was a introduction of this slow growing species into cultivation after many years of searching. It was finally discovered on the high mountain Tawara-Yama in central Kyushu, Japan in 2006. ... Learn More
