    COSTUS LIMA

    Attractive dazzling red bracts open out into bright yellow flowers. These are displayed at the tops of strong robust shoots with large, spiralling leaves, making an entrancing display. Thriving as evergreen plants outdoors in subtropical and tropical areas, they grow from large underground rhizomes, but can be grown outdoors in colder countries and USA Zones 7 to 11. But but where frosts occur, as with other gingers, they will be cut down to ground level and grow anew each year. They are also ideally suited as houseplants in bright locations, or grown in a pot in a conservatory or greenhouse, and as the plant is evergreen they can flower all the year round once established. Although the "spiral gingers" are so named, they are actually in the Costaceae family, and not the closely related Zingiberaceae, or true gingers family. In the wild they are native to Central and South American forests from Honduras to Venezuela and Ecuador, where they grow in the under storey of the rainforest. ... Learn More

    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.

    ECHIUM 'PURPLE PILLARS'

    A staggeringly different addition to our already long list of new, big echium hybrids. In spring, countless buds sprout sideways from the trunk, they turn upwards, and then become thick, stout, strong, vertical columns. Tightly-clustered sprays of multicoloured but predominantly violet-purple flowers, cloak them in early summer, continuing to slowly open from the the bottom upwards for many months. The flowers on this variety should be even more compact than on its relatives as it has inherited this characteristic from one of its parents, Echium wildprettii! If deadheaded after flowering, numerous new shoots will usually appear around the remaining stems to continue the display the following year. The odd variant habit or colour may always appear, so we must respectfully point out that all of our new, and sometimes unique hybrid seed, by its very nature, may produce occasional freaks and oddities. Busy bees also pollinate the many plants we grow here in just a few hectares. It is therefore likely that you may get the occasional surprise variant. So If you discover something remarkable, and are happy to do so, please send us a picture for our website. ... Learn More
