  1. CYNARA CARDUNCULUS 'CARDOON'

    Rarely offered, this naturally occurring enormous variant of the Globe artichoke is native to the Mediterranean, where it was domesticated in ancient times. This giant is a true hardy perennial with silvery, thistle-like foliage, and tall flower stems, which are topped by fat thistle-like buds which resemble small globe artichokes in summer. Whilst the flower buds can be eaten in the same way as the artichoke, the stems which resemble large celery stalks, are usually eaten after being braised or steamed. With an artichoke-like flavour, they are also used as a vegetarian source of enzymes for cheese production. ... Learn More

  5. CYPELLA HERBERTII

    This exotic-looking beautiful flower opens in a quite unusual shade of french mustard! The individual flowers open for just a day or so, and then another flower opens on the same stem, making a long display as long as buds are produced. These plants will perform well in dryish warm screes but excel themselves in a container when they can multiply up. In the wild they are found from S. Brazil to N.E. Argentina. Few seeds collected. ... Learn More

  6. CYPERUS ALTERNIFOLIUS

    The "Umbrella Plant" makes an attractive feature in a bright window or sun lounge where it produces strong stems topped with striking umbrella-like spokes. On mature plants, sprays of white flowers appear. It may also be used as an impressive marginal plant in a pond or bog garden. If planted deeply it will survive the average winter although is best given winter protection. It is a native of the swamps of Madagascar and a relative of the famous Papyrus of the Nile river and is also sometimes called Umbrella Papyrus, Umbrella Sedge or Umbrella Palm. ... Learn More

  7. CYRTANTHUS BRACHYSCYPHUS

    Above narrow foliage arise slender, wiry stems, holding clusters of up to ten long-lasting, very bright, orange-red trumpets, which will re-appear throughout the summer, especially if watering is stopped for five or six weeks, then restarted. Intense, flaming orange is not a frequently encountered colour among the smaller bulb species, but this is a superb and glorious exception, an established plant with multiple flowering stems being a joy to behold. Although quite rare, this is one of the easier ones to grow. In the wild they are found in moist grassland or rocky stream banks in the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. They are best planted in frost-free conditions, in a fertile well-drained loam soil with the necks at the soil surface, or in a frost-free container. ... Learn More

  8. DACTYLORHIZA FOLIOSA

    This beautiful spectacular Madeiran Orchid is a must for any flower border as its striking flower spikes double up every year. It will grow in any soil, and in fact does best in impoverished or un-manured conditions and prefers full sun, flowering in June with truly exceptionally large blooms. ... Learn More

  9. DACTYLORHIZA INCARNATA

    Stems, sometimes purple near the top, hold numerous pink flowers which are patterned with darker pink–purple. The alternate, stalkless leaves, which gradually become smaller towards the crown, are lanceolate with an entire margin and are attractively covered in dark purple spots. As implied by the common name, they will thrive in damp, even wet places where they can double up reliably each year. ... Learn More

  10. DACTYLORHIZA PURPURELLA

    This beautiful flower is widespread in the British Isles where it is found at up to 600 m above sea level. It is the more northerly equivalent of D. praetermissa with a delightful stocky dwarf habit with deep blue-tinged, green leaves and compact crowded flower spikes of deep rich violet-purple flowers. The individual blooms are deeply coloured and have a characteristic diamond shaped lip. It grows well and bulks up, doubling annually in ordinary garden soil, which is ideally damp but well drained. ... Learn More

  11. DAHLIA AUTUMN DAZZLERS

    New! Dahlia australis, the true species, is a magnificent plant, with demurely nodding pink to lilac flowers, (which are bigger than the similar D. merckii, which is less vigorous and of smaller stature.) Sadly, we have found that it can be difficult to keep year on year. But one day, we discovered that the busy bees at Plant World gardens had pollinated a Dahlia australis plant with pollen from other lovely dahlia cultivars in our gardens. And what an amazing surprise we received when this handful of seeds germinated and finally flowered! A completely new generation of tall but elegant dahlias with numerous branching spindly stems, offering months of a complete spectrum of vibrant colour with surprisingly little effort. These will flower their heads off in virtually any sunny spot, until the first frosts cut them down. Almost constant-flowering, these lovely single flower forms, with the occasional dark-leafed specimen, make solid, stately, almost shrubby plants, which are very easy to integrate into the average garden border, and appear to be quite hardy, having survived for ten years outside untouched by winter. Not prolific seed producers but worth any trouble to grow. ... Learn More

  12. DAHLIA CAMPANULATA

    Pendulous bell-shaped, golden-eyed, pale lavender flowers, up to 6 inches or 15 cm. across, hang from the enormous blooming panicle that can reach one metre across. Surely the rarest and grandest of all Dahlias, and seldom seen in gardens, it was only recently discovered in cool cloud forest at high elevations, (around 2000 m.) in Oaxaca, Mexico, where it is accustomed to cool days and not-too-cold nights. This gorgeous, statuesque, deciduous perennial tree dahlia, with towering height and bamboo-like stems can grow up to 3 m tall. It is late-flowering, from September onwards (in the northern hemisphere), bud formation being initiated by shorter day length. It will prefer a sheltered spot in cold areas, or alternatively it can make the most impressive greenhouse or conservatory plant you will ever see! After blooming, the plant may be cut down all the way to the ground as the stems die away. (Image courtesy of John McKenna) ... Learn More

  13. DAHLIA IMPERIALIS

    Reputedly the largest of all dahlias, this Mexican giant, in perfect sheltered conditions, can grow up to 5-8m tall, but not quite that tall in the UK! Enormous, dense clusters of large, golden-centred, pinkish-mauve flowers open on the strong, bamboo-like stems. These are thick and become woody at the base, and along with the dark green, divided, velvety leaves, often have a purplish tinge. Budding and flowering, usually in September, is initiated by a long warm autumn and days getting shorter. This magnificent beast is an unbeatable architectural plant for a warm exotic border or a large container in a greenhouse or tall conservatory. ... Learn More

  14. DAHLIA IMPERIALIS 'CAERULEA'

    As beautiful as it is rare, this is the not-often-seen pale blue form of this fabulous native Mexican tree dahlia. An impressive species, it reaches heights in excess of 8' (2.5m) in a single season, and to ensure successful flowering it needs to be grown in rich, well-drained soil, in a situation protected from frost. The enormous 6 to 8 inch flower blooms seldom appear before September or October, but even long before then it makes an absolutely stunning foliage plant with finely cut leaves in abundance covering the unusual bamboo-like stems. If you live in a cold place, and would love a treat...try a large pot in a tall greenhouse or conservatory! Seldom seen or offered. ... Learn More

  15. DARLINGTONIA CALIFORNICA

    This wonderful, bizarre, insectiverous plant bears graceful, attractive, nodding, yellowish-green flowers, heavily veined crimson, which appear in spring. Although perhaps seen at its gruesome best in a greenhouse, it is hardy, and grows best in acidic moist soil or moss, a choice it often makes in the wild in its native home of Northern California and Oregon, where it thrives in bogs and wet spots in cold running water. It positively must not be fed with artificial fertiliser, especially nitrogen and phosphates, which will kill it. It obtains essential nutrients from insects which it lures into its digestive juice-filled traps! ... Learn More
