  1. 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

  2. PUYA MIRABILIS

    Exotic, flaring, lime-green bells, loved by butterflies and bees, open on stiff upright stems which erupt in early spring from relatively small rosettes of thick, spiny foliage. This Bolivian plant is probably the quickest to bloom of all puyas, often in only a year after planting, whereas some puyas can take several years to blossom. In addition it is completely drought tolerant and is quite incredibly frost hardy if kept well-drained and dry. ... Learn More

  3. PUYA RAIMONDII

    From 3,000 species of Bromeliads (the pineapple family) this one is the king! After many years of growing a huge rosette of slender leaves, a massive stalk erupts, which can rise to more than 5 metres, and contain countless thousands of ivory-white flowers, each creamy-white blossom being 2 inches (5 cm.) wide, with bright orange anthers. These gorgeous flowers , for a short time, will attract hordes of pollinating insects and butterflies, as well as hummingbirds in warmer climes! It comes from the cool Andean highlands, at about 13,000 feet, so is believed to be frost-tolerant down to about 20 degrees F (-6°C). If grown in fast-draining soil, despite coming from an arid climate, it can tolerate frequent watering as long as the soil drains quickly. This endangered species is growing in only a few places outside its native Andes range, so it is rare to find the genuine species for sale. We offer the very-rarely-available true seed. ...

  5. QUERCUS ILEX (ACORN)

    This large spreading evergreen tree bears dark green leaves which are tough and leathery, with pale undersides. Finally becoming a large and impressive specimen, it is native to the Mediterranean region, although it grows well in almost all parts of the UK once established. The male flowers are catkins and the female flowers give rise to large seeds or "acorns", in a very similar way to the English Oak, Quercus robur. It takes one of its common names from 'holm', an ancient name for holly (whose botanical name is Ilex). ... Learn More

  6. RAFFENALDIA PRIMULOIDES

    Bright sprays of fragrant cruciform flowers open in early spring on this rare, miniscule and very unusual member of the cruciferae, which deserves a place in a pot in an alpine house, or in a well-drained scree or rockery. Primuloides means 'like a primula', making this another one to baffle the experts! ... Learn More

  7. RAMONDA MYCONI

    These completely hardy members of the "African Violet" family make dark green rosettes of hairy succulent leaves from which arise round-faced, yellow-eyed, purple flowers. They are very, very long-lived in walls where they will slowly get bigger year after year, and can stand an unbelievable amount of cold, heat and drought. ... Learn More

  8. RAMONDA NATHALIAE

    The beautiful sky blue flowers of this rare and lovely plant are similar to, but distinctly different from the more commonly seen flowers of R. myconi. It grows in Serbia and Macedonia, mainly in the east of both countries and is well known on the Nidze mountain near Bitola in Macedonia. It was named after the Serbian queen Natalija Obrenovic and is also known as the phoenix flower, referring to the resurrection of the Serbian state after the destruction during World War I. ...

  9. RANUNCULUS ACRIS 'CITRINUS'

  10. RANUNCULUS BULLATUS

    This rare, drought-proof, summer dormant, very late autumn-flowering buttercup, has bright yellow flower cups on elongated stems above a basal rosette of thick, veined, leathery leaves from September and into November. Rather resembling a celandine, but flowering at the opposite end of the year, it is ideal for any humus-rich, slightly moist soil in a protected, sunny spot. In the wild it is found from the Mediterranean islands through western Asia to Algeria, France and Greece. ... Learn More

  11. RANUNCULUS CORTUSIFOLIUS

    One of the very biggest, and most impressive of all buttercups, this easy-to-grow giant opens enormous, bright green, maple-like leaves beneath large heads of large bunches of huge, shiny yellow buttercups, each with a bright green eye! This display continues until autumn when it dies completely away into a tuber, re-emerging again in early spring. This unexpectedly hardy plant is native to all of the Canary islands and will do best in rich, rather moist soils. ... Learn More

  12. RANUNCULUS FICARIA

    One of our earliest spring flowers, just after the snowdrops, it can appear as early as the latter part of February where it makes carpets of golden stars on the banks of streams and rivers, or else in the more shaded areas under hedgerows. Contrary to popular belief it was the Lesser Celandine rather than the Daffodil which is said to have been William Wordsworth’s favourite flower. He wrote three poems to the little flower with the “glittering countenance”, noting the plant’s habit of opening and shutting its petals according to the weather: “There is a Flower, the Lesser Celandine, That shrinks, like many more, from cold and rain; And, at the first moment that the sun may shine, Bright as the sun itself, ‘tis out again!” ...

  13. RANUNCULUS GRAMINEUS

    This lovely gem supplies valuable spring colour for the front of a border or rockery. Even experts are fooled by the long, sisyrinchium-like, glaucous leaves before the very long succession of butter-yellow saucers appears. It has no vices and is too seldom seen. ... Learn More

  14. RANUNCULUS PARNASSIFOLIUS

    From an overwintering tuberous root arise short stems holding golden eyed, waxy-petalled, ivory goblets, which sometimes are gently blushed with pink. The foliage of this high alpine plant is equally attractive, the slightly pointed oval leaves being thick, leathery, and deeply-veined. One of the world's most breathtakingly lovely plants, this is a challenge to grow and flower perfectly, and has won many a medal at shows. ... Learn More

  15. RANUNCULUS PLATANIFOLIUS

    High in the alpine meadows of the European Alps lives this quite spectacular plant. Golden-eyed, ivory white saucers open in long succession on repeatedly dividing stems, giving a good season of bloom. Easy to grow in good, well-drained but moist soil, it will gently self-seed if you are fortunate! Very few fertile seeds available. ... Learn More
