  1. Coreopsis tinctoria dwarf red


    A valuable new addition to the cottage garden bed where it will shine happily in clumps at the front edge or fill gaps between perennials. Being a rich shade of deep red, it is eye-catching in its own right but also acts as a foil for less attractive foliage plants. ... Learn More


  2. Cosmos bipinnatus picotee


    Sizeable, up-turned, jagged petalled white flowers are brightly-edged in deep pink, giving a dazzling splash of colour. This stylishly elegant annual for the middle or back of the border will grow upwards, giving colour to your perennials when they have finished. Place near Sambucus nigra or other red-leaved shrubs for a sophisticated display. ... Learn More


  3. Costus speciosus rgb


    Also known as crepe or Malay ginger, (Syn. Cheilocostus speciosus) this is possibly the best known cultivated species of the genus Costus. These plants differ from the common ginger by having only one row of spirally arranged leaves. The flowers appear in late summer or early autumn, and are quite unusual looking, forming large red cone-shaped bracts, with several, pure white, crinkled flowers protruding from each cone. The flowers look like crepe paper - thus the common name of crepe ginger. After the flowers fade away, the attractive red cone-shaped bracts remain. This is the most cold-hardy of the spiral gingers, and has been tested and proven root hardy down to 0ºF (-17.8ºC). In addition, it is mentioned in the Kama Sutra as an ingredient in a cosmetic to be used on the eyelashes to increase sexual attractiveness. this last respect we can not personally give any recommendations and reluctantly give no guarantees. ...

  4. Draco


    Reputedly one of the world's oldest plants, these amazing evergreen subtropical tree-like plants in the genus Dracaena, bear just a few branches bearing linear to lance-shaped leaves, often crowded towards the tips, and on mature plants small greenish-white flowers are followed by attractive clusters of orange or red berries. When the bark is damaged it exudes thick, red, blood-like sap, hence one of its common names! Making statuesque specimens in warmer countries, these are also superb pot plants elsewhere. It is a native of the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Madeira, and locally in western Morocco, and introduced to the Azores. ... Learn More


  5. Echinacea pallida


    This unique and quite captivating tall daisy forms elegant clumps of strong upright stems with long, thin, pendent, creamy-white petals, shading purple to the centre, suspended from the central golden brown cone. A statuesque and beautiful plant that will easily hold its own in any herbaceous border. ... Learn More


  6. Willowherb


    The tall, pretty pink flower spikes of rosebay willowherb, a useful nectar source for pollinators, are a common sight on railway banks and disturbed woodland in the UK. In a wild cottage garden it is truly impressive, and is able to compete easily with other vigorous specimens, spreading by seed and rhizomes. But in the more restrained environment of a neatly manicured garden its vigour makes it likely to try to take over, so care must be taken situating this plant. ... Learn More


  7. Erysimum jumbo orange


    This new gem from our ongoing breeding programme possesses a full hand of aces! The seeds, collected individually as they ripen, should produce unique, enormous, hardy perennial plants which make strong stout stems, almost trunks, in their second year. Plant them out as small plants, they will not thrive in a small pot, and it is essential they are given room to grow unhindered in an open position, when they will spread out into a solid dome of branches clad in evergreen leaves. In the following late winter to early spring, (and ours flower earlier than all other perennial erysimums we grow,) they will produce an amazing, long-lasting display of fragrant flowers. They are predominantly orange, deeper-veined in red, but you will invariably discover plants with other colour shades. One of the distant parents was 'Erysimum Bowles' Mauve', but this new strain is far more vigorous, and being seedlings they are virus-free. ... Learn More


  8. Erythrina corallodendron


    Beautiful multi-petalled coral pink flowers are followed by attractive jet black seeds, amongst delicate green pinnate leaves. This small, highly-ornamental sub-tropical tree can be also grown as a shrub in warmer countries, and can make a superb container plant for a conservatory or summer bedding out elsewhere. Very few seeds available. ... Learn More


  9. Eucalyptus globulus


    Native to Australia (where currently the largest known specimen is not far short of 300 ft tall), this attractive gum, with attractive fluffy, lemon-coloured flowers, will make a handsome statement in a large garden. It is very fast-growing but very easy to keep in check by pruning, and the young foliage of this Eucalyptus is beloved of flower arrangers everywhere, so if you want to keep your specimen small feel free to pollard away! ... Learn More


  10. Ficus auriculata


    An unusually small tree in the wild, it has disproportionately large leaves, hence one of its common names, which start intensely red, and turn more and more green when reaching their ultimate size of up to 50 cm length. Its edible fruits, which ripen both on branches and the trunk, are used to make jams, juices and curries in India, whilst in Vietnam, unripe fruits are also used in salads. It also provides various traditional medicinal uses, and its large strong leaves are often used as plates! The tree is cultivated in India and from Myanmar to Vietnam and SW China and Brazil. ...

  11. Noimage


    This large-leaved, almost frost-hardy evergreen shrub bears large clusters of attractive rose-purple flowers followed by bunches of dark purple fruit. In a sheltered spot it makes an incredibly attractive specimen, flowering throughout the year if kept warm and dryish. Although botanically a fuchsia, and looking more like a lilac, its identity often puzzles people who admire it! ... Learn More


  12. Noimage


    A superb collection of all of our geranium pratense forms. Colours range from pure white, through pinks and pale blues to deep blue. Also included are some coloured-foliage forms which vary from dark to paler foliage. ... Learn More


  13. Gliricidia sepium


    This medium-sized shrub or small tree produces a generous quantity of flowers, its arching branches often being weighed down by the densely packed racemes of fragrant, nectar-rich pink blossoms. With a medium-sized, open crown it is particularly valued for its use as a shade and support tree, as a producer of green manure and forage crop in plantations, and when cropped down is even established as living fences. It is deciduous, but may be evergreen and flower sporadically through the year in areas with rain all year round. A very valuable multipurpose tree and important component of various agroforestry systems, it is often cultivated in many tropical countries of Central and South America, S and SE Asia, the Pacific islands and Africa where it serves as a pioneer species to establish new sites. ...

  14. Gomphrena haageana strawberry fields


    Large numbers of red spherical flowerheads contrast against the bright-green narrow lance-shaped leaves, making a most eye-catching display that is bound to draw comment. An attractive perennial plant, it can also successfully be treated as an annual and used to bulk out displays in containers or at the border edge. ... Learn More


  15. Hedychium stenopetalum


    Snow-white, exceedingly fragrant flowers have a faint greenish-yellow tint to the base, and prominent white or off-white stamens. This rarely-offered Indian native, with big, bold, banana-like leaves, is very easy to grow from seed, and is one of the very tallest of all Hedychium species growing anything up to ten feet (3m) or so tall. Superb for a large garden in a warm climate, or a warm sheltered garden or even a large container elsewhere. ... Learn More
