    Yes! A Hardy begonia! Fleshy, olive green, deeply-veined foliage is held beneath fragrant light pink flowers 3cm wide in summer. Planted in moisture retentive but freely draining soil and mulched well with bark for more frost protection, this begonia, that can be grown outside all the year around and has top growth hardy to minus 2 degrees C but the tuberous roots have always survived every winter, even at minus 10C here! ...

    Begonias are usually prized for their unusually attractive leaves and this one is at the top of the league! Its leaves resemble those of a maple tree, however, they are enormous, up to 30cm across, and much more spectacular, with serrated edging and bright green centres that contrast dramatically with the deep purple of the rest of the leaf. The solid rhizomatous clump is composed of giant leaves surrounded by a contrasting wide black-green border, all being held at the end of red-speckled leaf petioles. Growers have reported that this variety has proved reliably hardy to 15 degrees F making it a stunning garden specimen! This wonderful begonia was first discovered in Mexico in the 1830s, the name referring to the leaves of heracleum, or "Giant Hogweed" to which it is obviously unrelated. Very rare fertile seeds. ...

    This lovely shrub-like perennial and low-maintenance houseplant displays large, asymmetrical, deeply-folded, dark green leaves with a superb metallic sheen, and striking red veins underneath. Large clusters of hairy, pink flowers open on sturdy, thin, erect stems. Coming from Brazil, it prefers temperatures above 10 °C (50 °F), so in temperate regions it is best grown under glass, or planted out in spring when it is sufficiently warm. At lower temperatures it may lose its foliage and die down but will re-sprout again with increasing warmth. ... Learn More

    Very late in the year, as daylight hours shorten, clouds of confetti-like flowers with prominent bright yellow anthers open, en-masse, atop the strong flower stalks. Because it only flowers when the weather is cool, if only in comparison to that of spring and summer, it is an impressive foliage plant during the warm months, with visual impact with its amazing leaf size and overall scale. As an annual in a warm climate, this astounding plant gathers strength all season, soaring to four or even six feet by frost. But in even warmer or hot climes, the "tree" begonia makes good on its name, with thick canes twelve feet (4 metres) high and more, each with a few enormous rhubarb-like leaves nearly a foot across, which are displayed loosely on strong, upright canes. So to guarantee a shower of flowers late in the year, try one in a large pot indoors in good light. ... Learn More

    Clusters of purple-spotted-orange flowers appear from midsummer onwards into early autumn. In a sheltered position it will multiply and slowly spread, or for more controlled flowering it does well in a large container. ... Learn More

    This beautiful, primitive, rare endemic plant is restricted to the mountains of Tasmania where it grows in high-altitude alpine and subalpine heaths and woodlands. The showy clusters of pale pink flowers, each of which has 4 pointed segments which spread then curl back, open from red buds. Later appear the brilliant red or yellow fruits, which are oval-shaped, narrowing at the leaf base. Like most proteas, this smallish erect shrub, which has entire, glabrous, fairly succulent leaves, has exceedingly attractive flower, but will be a real challenge to grow well and should walk away with any show-bench prize. This exceedingly scarce plant is the only species of the ancient Bellendena genus, and Phylogenetic studies sometimes place this genus as basal to the rest of the Proteaceae! ... Learn More

    This attractive bellevalia has bi-colored inflorescence, flowers turning from a bright lilac-blue to pale brownish green on opening with long basal leaves spreading on the ground. In its native environments of Italy, Greece and western Turkey, it occurs on rocky hillsides, but is easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot. ... Learn More

    Between March and May this small bulbous plant from the Middle East has fleshy, mid green, lance like leaves and bears numerous short stems of pale-rimmed dark, inky-blue flowers. It prefers a very well drained soil in full sun and a dry summer dormancy or baking in the ground, making it ideal for a hot bank, scree or rockery in areas where summers may be wet. Will naturalise where happy. Also make a lovely pot plant! ... Learn More



    From April onwards, tight conical clusters of pale blue buds open into compacted spikes of flared, waxy white flowers, each flower bell having attractively contrasting navy blue anthers. These flowers have an attractive fragrance which is especially noticeable in the evening. This lovely little plant should be grown more often but is rare in cultivation. ... Learn More



    Dark-eyed mauve dahlia-like flowers arise from clumps of prickly thistle leaves. An intriguing introduction from high in the South African mountains. This newcomer demands a hot sunny spot to give of its best. We have included seed from a few pure white-flowered seedlings. ... Learn More

    This rare dwarf species stands out as a plant worthy of a prominent spot in any garden with its impressive stature and mid-green, sword-shaped leaves, one inch wide by two feet long. It is the most floriferous member of the genus, the inflorescence being truly spectacular, with arching flower stalks ranging from three to five feet tall, and with both the stalks and flower stems magenta. The two-inch-long, pendent, tubular flowers bear magenta sepals and chartreuse green petals. The flowers generally open in late spring to early summer and can last for several weeks, the dramatic seed pods being a bonus, also being being magenta, streaked with chartreuse or cream. They persist on the flower stalks for several months into late autumn, eventually opening to reveal black shiny seeds. Beschornerias are not monocarpic, (which means dying after flowering) as the same rosette will bloom year after year, and more rosettes develop around the mother plant. Each of the ten Beschorneria species originate in Mexico, this one being naturally found in the understory of highland oak and pine forests from 6,000 to 8,000 feet elevation in the states of Guanajuato, San Luis Potosi, and Tamaulipas in central Mexico, where they attract, and are pollinated by, hummingbirds. Few fertile seeds collected. ... Learn More

    From a yucca-like, but softer leaved rosette of sword-like leaves, arise huge arching spikes of red and green flowers, much resembling a dragon's head. One of the world's most magnificent hardy plants, very long-lived in a well-drained sheltered spot. Very few good seeds are ever collected. ... Learn More

    A striking new double form with a compact, lax habit, and an exceptionally long flowering period. The golden, daisy-like, double blooms smother the ferny foliage from early summer onwards. Brighten up your hanging baskets and containers, or let their trailing stems spread through gravel gardens and the front of borders. Likes a sunny position. ... Learn More

    This wonderful, robust, strong evergreen fern from Chile is by far the most distinctive of our few reliably hardy evergreen ferns. Growing to 3 ft or more, it has thick, leathery dark green pinnatifid fronds. It spreads quite easily, in time developing into a colony, and will form a dramatic impact to your garden. ...

    This relatively easy-to-grow orchid produces broad, pleated, aspidistra-like leaves. In late spring, arching stems of superb pink orchid flowers appear, with the very occasional white form appearing. Once established, this plant is a valuable garden treasure as it is quite hardy, but it may be grown in a pot to overwinter inside where winters are extremely cold. It prefers a cool, organic soil if possible in a shaded or woodland situation where the rhizomes can slowly spread over the years. ... Learn More
