    ACHILLEA MILLEFOLIUM

    This tough, spreading, UK wildflower has long, narrow, finely dissected, very aromatic green leaves, and white, umbel-like flowers floating above ribbed stems, and these easy-to-grow British natives are often tinged pink, adding to their allure. They are perfect for wilder parts of your garden and even amongst ornamental grasses to attract bees, butterflies, hoverflies and other beneficial insects. Yarrow is also good for cutting and drying, and has numerous herbal uses including making a distinctive flavour of tea! Since the times of Ancient Greece, yarrow has been used in poultices and ointments to treat wounds, and may alleviate digestive issues, may help reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, may fight inflammation, and finally...(lots of mays!)...may aid brain health! ...

    AGAPANTHUS SUNFIELD

    Tall, vigorous and dazzlingly architectural, this clump-forming perennial produces massive flower heads up to 30cm/12" across of dark-veined cobalt blue flowers from mid summer. These form above the strap-shaped glossy green leaves on top of sturdy upright stems and can last for several weeks before they start to fade. This tall variety makes a big impact when planted in bold swathes or potted up into substantial pots. They will thrive in fertile, well-drained soil with plenty of sun, and are a stunning long-flowering edition to a summer border display. ... Learn More

    ALLIUM CAMPANULATUM

    Heads of unusually attractive fragrant flowers, which can vary from rose pink to dark purple, open their petals which are delicately marked deeper at the centres. Generally flowering from May to August, they live at heights usually between 2,000 to 8,500 feet. As a rule their chosen habitat is rocky, thin or sandy soils, foothills, mountains, particularly in dry areas including chaparral and woodland habitats, and on open or shaded slopes, so this is an indication of what they like. In their native USA they have been recorded from southeastern Washington and northern Oregon to southern California, and western Nevada. ... Learn More

    ARCHONTOPHOENIX CUNNINGHAMIANA

    This stately palm has large, arching feather-like leaves, the newly emerging foliage having a coppery hue. Producing violet flowers in midsummer, the subsequent red fruits are most attractive to birds. It is tolerant of light frosts so can be also grown in an atrium or conservatory. In the wild it grows in the wet subtropics on the sides of Mt Warning Volcano in northern NSW and over the border in Queensland's Lamington National Park. In the United States, the palm is a popular plant in California from San Luis Obispo south to the Mexican border and in much of central and southern Florida. ... Learn More

    COLCHICUM LONGIFLORUM

    Late-blooming, from September to November, this popular flower opens large, very long-stemmed, lilac-pink goblets, suddenly appearing just as the season draws to an end. The large, floppy, upright basal leaves appear on their own the following spring to make more bulbs for future years. ... Learn More

    COLCHICUM SPECIOSUM BORNMUELLERI

    This is the extremely beautiful, rarer, and much earlier-flowering form of Colchicum speciosum, which produces pale, almost white buds with a greenish perianth tube. Mature flowers, which appear in late autumn, long before the leaves, are pale rosy-lilac with white throat. This form from Northern Turkey has narrower leaves and purplish anthers, and although it was once considered a species, it is now included in Colchicum speciosum. ... Learn More

    DIERAMA RAY'S RED GIANT

    This unique and absolutely superb plant is simultaneously both the largest-flowered and shortest-stemmed dierama we have ever produced. After flowering tens of thousands of species and hybrids of these lovely "Angels Fishing Rods" we selected only this one that passed all of the tests for a perfect plant. Disproportionately large blood-red flowers open on very short, strong, almost stubby stems with very little foliage to detract from its beauty. Seedlings can invariably vary a lot, but you will get some fabulous plants, the results of 30 years of breeding these lovely plants here at Plant World. Predictably, it produces very few fertile seeds. I must here pay a tribute to Rachel and Rodney Saunders, two good friends, who had for many years supplied us (amongst other species) with new and desirable dierama seeds collected (legally) on their South African mountains. In June 2018 they were cruelly murdered and mutilated, for their possessions, whilst collecting seeds, only one day after making a BBC 'Gardener's World' programme with presenter Nick Bailey. ...

    ELTINGERA ELATIOR

    Very rarely seen in the west, but perfectly-growable, is this gorgeous ginger relative that bears more resemblance to an echinacea (cone flower) or dahlia when it flowers! The strong stems hold bunches of blossoms composed of waxy, deepest rosy-pink petals, with paler margins, spreading from an expanding central cone. The large, hairy, attractive, red-green fruiting heads add to its attraction. It is nowadays grown throughout tropical South East Asia for the spectacular flowers and also for food, as the stems of the flowers are chopped up and added to curries or soups with rice noodles. ...

    EUONYMUS PLANIPES

    Noted for its most dramatic foliage and gorgeous ornamental berries, this sizeable tree, or deciduous shrub, is invaluable in the autumn and winter garden. Its foliage of huge, ovate, mid-green leaves turns to vibrant crimson-to-ruby red in early autumn, making the whole plant glow with colour. ... Learn More

    EUPHORBIA 'DWARF BLACK PEARL'

    Grey-green whorls of foliage bear sprays of bright green flowers, each with a darkest maroon almost black eye. Bursting with sweet nectar these striking flowers, which open in spring and stay in place until the first frosts, are a magnet for bees and butterflies. One of the most attractive of all euphorbias, this dwarf form will thrive almost anywhere but excels in dry gardens. Seed very scarce. ... Learn More

    FRAXINUS SIEBOLDIANA

    This rarely-seen, but most attractive tree, sometimes used in parks and public gardens, bears attractive divided leaves surmounted by sizeable panicles of fragrant white male and female flowers which are very decorative in May and June. Fairly slow growing, it makes a large shrub to small or medium-size tree and is rarely taller than 10 m under cultivation. It prefers somewhat drier soil and a warm, sunny position. Very few fertile seeds collected. ... Learn More

Even out of flower, the plants are attractive, as it is an evergreen. A delightful little plant from the European high Alps. ... Learn More
