  1. Lobelia greg


    Remarkably similar to the Puya of the Andes in South America or Echium wildpretii from the island of Tenerife, this giant unrelated rosette plant displays the evidence of parallel evolution, producing similar looking plants as they evolve in similar habitats. Although the dark maroon to black flowers are attractive, they are almost completely hidden within the bracts. This rare and astonishing plant is native to wetter spots in the alpine zone of Mount Kenya between 3300 and 4600 m, where the extreme climate is usually clear and cold in the mornings, with intense sunshine, and cloudy or foggy in the afternoons with frost at night. Daytime temperatures are usually only a few degrees above freezing, and in a similar way to many bromeliads, the leaf rosette holds a reservoir of water among the tightly fitted leaves, which is key to its survival in this inhospitable habitat. In cultivation, the giant Lobelias are extremely rare, and will do best outside in temperate, highly oceanic climates such as Ireland, New Zealand, southern Chile or the coastal Northwestern of the U.S. Otherwise they make stunning pot plants if slowly potted on until they flower. Viable seed difficult to collect and very scarce indeed. ... Learn More


  2. Lonicera alpigena


    Dark, blood-red flowers are followed by large numbers of cherry-red berries which are sprinkled liberally over the entire plant giving a pleasing effect. Cultivated since the 16th Century, this attractive deciduous shrub has dark green, shining leaves, and is found in the wild in woods and stony places in the mountains of Europe. Normally a medium-sized shrub, it can be easily clipped to maintain its dwarf stature, under 3ft if required, making it a good hedging plant. ... Learn More


  3. Lonicera ciliosa


    In early summer clusters of up to twenty tubular, bright orange, fragrant flowers open, arranged in whorls and blooming at the branch tips, fruiting later as attractive clusters of red-orange berries. This strong climbing honeysuckle, native to the western and southern states of the USA is happiest in partial shade and will tolerate moist or dry soils, where it will even scramble over the ground at soil level if giving nothing to climb upon. ...

  4. Lupinus kaleidoscope collection


    Grow some lupin plants nobody will have seen before! Occasionally, in our trial grounds, self-sown hybrid plants appear between beds of different lupins such as Russell-type lupins and various forms of both tree and prostrate lupins. Seeds from these unusual, and sometimes quite bizarre flowers have been collected, and the results, predictably, give plants of all shapes, colours, and sizes, and some low and weeping forms may also occur! ...

(Graham Stuart Thomas) This gem will gently self-seed only if it is happy. ... Learn More


  7. Maurandya antirhinifolia


    Maurandya antirrhiniflora, known as roving sailor or (along with other similar species) climbing snapdragon, is a scrambling or climbing herbaceous perennial native to Mexico and the south western United States (California to Texas) where it grows in a variety of relatively dry habitats. It has more-or-less triangular untoothed leaves and tubular flowers in various shades of pink, red or blue to violet with white bases. ... Learn More


  8. Noimage

  9. Nelumbo nucifera


    Large, luscious, pink tipped waxy petals adorn the famous "Sacred Lotus", a magnificent aquatic perennial. Amazingly, unlike other water lilies, both the flowers and leaves are able to grow upwards above the water for a considerable height, on strong stiff stems, accentuating their amazing beauty! In addition, the sizeable peltate leaves have a remarkable water repellent characteristic that serves as a self-cleaning mechanism, the whole plant making an interesting and noteworthy addition to any pond. Although it has been long-considered a close relative of the Water Lily, a noticeable difference is the large and quite bizarre ice-cream cone shaped receptacle at the centre of the plant. The terminal buds of lotus roots in pools begin to bud when the temperature rises to above 13 degrees Celsius in early April. In mid- and late May, the leaves grow above the water. In early and mid-June, blooming starts. In late June and mid-August, they reach full bloom. In early September, the last flowering period starts. And so, finally, for the botanists amongst you, recent molecular research has surprisingly shown that its closest living relatives are the plane trees and members of the protea family (Proteaceae). Indeed, their isolated phylogenetic position indicates that both Nelumbo and Platanus may be living fossils (the only survivors of an ancient and formerly much more diverse group). So you are now able to grow a Dinosaur plant in your pond! Fresh seeds rarely offered. ... Learn More
