  1. Parkinsonia aculeata


    This spiny shrub or small tree opens fragrant flowers which are a bright yellow-orange, with the fifth petal elongated, with a warmer yellow, and purple spotted at the base. These grow from a long slender stalk in groups of eight to ten and are most popular with bees and butterflies. The long, unusually thin leaves make the showy flowers even more visible. It is ideal for a small garden or large container. ... Learn More


  2. Passiflora anti


    One of the world's rarest and most spectacular Passion flowers, dazzling red blossoms with darker eyes, hang down on long peduncles, along its entire length before producing unique seed pods. A superb ornamental plant, it grows in highland regions in western part of South America, where it makes a climbing shrub with shoots growing up to 5m tall and in the wild it is often hummingbird pollinated. The edible, yellow ellipsoidal fruit has a sweet flavour, and it may be eaten raw or made into drinks. In cooler countries it should be grown either in a large pot or a very sheltered position outside. ... Learn More


  3. Petalostemon purpureum


    This amazing inflorescence rather resembles English Plantago - except the flowers, slowly opening up the stem, are bright purple, and very pretty!! A valuable addition to the garden, it is very drought resistant, and the deep taproot will add beneficial nitrogen to your soil - so what's not to like? An intriguing American native, it makes a fascinating cut flower to baffle your friends! ... Learn More


  4. Philodendron selloum


    Stunningly attractive, glossy, deeply lobed leaves will bring a feel of the tropics to your home or office, and often do best in diffused natural light (i.e. keep out of direct sunlight) although artificial light will suffice if necessary. If you have the right climate to grow it outdoors, you can look forward to large leaves up to 1.2m long supported on a thick woody trunk marked with distinctive tear-drop shaped leaf scars where older leaves have been shed. One of the prettiest tropical shrubs, it can successfully be grown as a houseplant in more temperate climates. ... Learn More


  5. Primula verticillata


    Beautiful, jagged-edged grey leaves are thickly dusted with farina, which also coats the flower stems, each carrying whorls of bright yellow flowers. This spectacular and rarely-encountered beauty can be grown in a dry, protected spot outdoors, but it truly does make an amazing spectacle indoors or in an alpine house, where it can stand considerable heat and drying, even on a hot window sill as in the illustration here. It can be very thirsty, but it rewards constant drinks, and occasional feeding with an endless display of fragrant flowers as it blooms on and off for much of the year apart from mid-winter! In the wild the Sphondylia section of primulas come from surprisingly hot places, like Saudia Arabia, Yemen, the Sinai peninsula and Ethiopia, where they inhabit shady, damp places and often grow on wet, north facing, limestone cliffs. Botanically, they are related to, and indeed the flowers bear some resemblance, to the beautiful, and much harder-to-grow Dionysia species. Old plants can grow to a very large size and reward being re-potted yearly. ... Learn More


  6. Prunus cerasoides pink


    This extremely attractive tree is adorned with sprays of pastel pink flowers which later become clusters of yellow cherries that turns bright red as they ripen and can be eaten raw or cooked. Also prized for its attractive ringed bark, it is unusual in that it flowers in autumn and winter when little other colour is around. Finally, the fruits and the leaves give a dark green dye, seeds can be used in the manufacture of necklaces, the wood is hard, strong, durable and aromatic, and branches are used as walking sticks. ...

  7. Puya harmsii


    Possibly the most ornamental of all puyas, its agave-like leaves, formed in clusters of neat rosettes, are attractively dusted with white powder. This king of ornamental puyas originates from high altitudes in the Andes in north western Argentina. When fully mature, magnificent spires of deep blue, orchid-like flowers appear. ... Learn More


  8. Rhododendron japonicum ornage


    Showy, fragrant orange flowers open in early summer of this beautiful Japanese azalea. In its native Japan and China, this low-growing shrub forms dense thickets in the mountains, and is therefore an ideal plant for growing in grass or even a shady woodland garden. ... Learn More


  9. Rhododendron sinogrande


    Enormous trusses of up to 30 sizeable bell-shaped flowers, spotted with bright crimson blotches inside, open canary-yellow before slowly fading to creamy-white. Worth growing for its architectural foliage alone, young silvery gray shoots, with bright red bud scales, slowly open and expand into the largest-leaves of any rhododendron on Earth, sometimes reaching 20 in. or 50 cm. long, and these have a wonderful thick woolly fawn indumentum on the underside. Along with R. Macabeanum this is probably the most impressive variety of the large leaf forms obtainable. Deservedly awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit, it is native to alpine regions at 2,100–3,600 m (6,900–11,800 ft) in southeastern Xizang and western Yunnan in China and in northeastern Myanmar. ...

  10. Noimage


    This quite vigorous tree-climbing species is adorned with attractive grey-green leaves which are covered with large clusters of very fragrant, golden-eyed, palest-primrose-to-cream flowers. Finally comes a wonderful display of huge clusters of oval orange-red fruits which are quite outstanding. Its strong growth makes this useful late flowering rambler perfect for growing over arches and along walls, even in a northerly position, for a simple yet stunning look. ... Learn More


  11. Rosa hugonis


    A gorgeous colour-break in roses gives us this superb specimen with long graceful branches wreathed in fern-like foliage, and dainty, soft fragrant lemon yellow petals alighting on thorny, ferny branches like butterflies. Blooming from May-June, it is not only stunning in spring, its foliage turns bright reddish orange in autumn and bears red-maroon round hips. It was originally found in the wild in Northern China. It is one of the most beautiful of the wild roses, both in and out of flower. Few seeds collected. ... Learn More


  12. Rubus giraldianus


    Clusters of white flowers later become sweet blackberries. But during the growing season, the arching canes look just like any other member of this family, but the real show starts when the leaves fall and the cranberry coloured stems become covered in white powder and glow with a ghostly silver (with the slightest hint of pink from the red stems underneath). This display is truly dramatic with a dark backdrop! They do well if cut to the ground each spring to keep them to a manageable size, and will grow in almost any position. But do plant them where they can be admired in the winter! In England this plant was crossed with Rubus occidentalis to produce vigorous hybrids with more flowers, greater fruit production,and resistance to viruses! ... Learn More


  13. Salvia coccinea


    Fiery red flowers are displayed along the length of long mid-green stems with an interesting square cross-section, and emerge from a profusion of attractive, smallish, almost triangular, deeply veined, perfumed foliage. This attractive perennial will make a fine display shining out from the mid- to rear sections of your border, or as a fine specimen plant in a large container. In a hot dry spot, once established it is almost indestructible, flowering away when most others have shrivelled. And even if it is cut back by a hard winter it invariably re-shoots the following spring. ... Learn More


  14. Salvia lyrata purple knockout


    Delicate white or pale lavender flowers appear in late spring and early summer, making a sophisticated contrast against the rosettes of shiny, dark red leaves whose colour intensifies in autumn. This fabulous ornamental sage will easily hold its own near the front of your border, as a specimen plant in a cottage garden or dotted about an informal gravel garden. ... Learn More


  15. Sedum postmans pride


    An absolutely mind-blowing selection of dark-foliaged plant for sunny, dry locations. Numerous strong, shortish semi-upright stems produce masses of flowers from pink to deepest crimson, from late summer through to autumn. But the foliage demonstrates its most crowning glory, and it varies from mahogany to almost jet black, and none of the seedlings should disappoint you. The flowers attract honey bees and butterflies, and like other sedums, it is invaluable in rock and dry gardens because, once established, it thrives without irrigation. And if you are curious about the cultivar name..... The original parent plant was discovered by a Belgian postal carrier as he delivered the mail! ... Learn More
