  1. LONICERA NITIDA 'FERTILIS'

    The commonly-grown evergreen form, best known for making quick-growing hedges, is always sterile. This rare mutant produces white flowers which later become attractive, bright purple berries, covering the entire stems in August and September, and if neatly trained makes a most attractive standard. ...

  2. LONICERA XYLOSTEUM

    Five-petalled white flowers, resembling big white bluebottle flies, bloom in June on this unusual, rarely-seen, much-branched shrub which grows most commonly in lush woods on slopes, and around fields, and was being cultivated in Britain by 1683. The attractive sprays of red berries appear in the autumn. Few seeds collected. ... Learn More

  3. LUPINUS CHAMISSONIS

    From a low dome of tiny, silky, silvery blue-green "lupin" leaves, arise short, stumpy spikes of blue and white flowers. This little gem looks exotic and tender, but is completely frost-hardy, but if pot grown, and starved, can win many a prize! Very few viable seeds have been collected. ... Learn More

    Lupinus versicolor with a spreading dwarf habit, has crossed in our gardens with the large tree lupins producing plants with an astonishing range of habits, from prostrate to erect bushes. Flowers are blue, white or pale yellow. ... Learn More

  6. MAGNOLIA SOULANGEANA

    Large, fragrant, tulip-like, white flowers faintly flushed with pink, open from earliest spring to early summer. These open on the bare branches before the first leaves appear, giving a glorious candelabra effect. One of the easiest and quickest-growing of this gorgeous group of flowering trees. ... Learn More

  7. MAGNOLIA WILSONII

    This breathtakingly beautiful species bears nodding blooms which open as pure white cups with rosy-purple or crimson stamens, later opening fully like bone-china saucers. Introduced from China nearly a century ago, it is also fortunately lime-tolerant. ... Learn More

  8. MALUS PUMILA (WILD APPLE)

    One of the most common fruits in temperate climates. The wild apple has been collected for thousands of years and later bred in many different lines each with their own desired characteristics. ... Learn More

  9. MANILKARA ZAPOTA

    Prized for its fruit which is considered one of the best in Central America, the ripe, soft brown flesh has an exceptionally sweet, malty flavour, rather like brown sugar, and the pale yellow to orange flesh has a soft, grainy texture just like that of a well-ripened pear. With a strong resemblance to the Kiwi Fruit, it can be eaten raw or made into jam, custard, ice cream and sherbet. It makes a stout tropical and subtropical tree with ornamental, green, glossy leaves with clusters of waxy white flowers. The large seeds are black and resemble beans. This incredible tree yields fruit twice a year, though flowering may continue year round, and it is also the source of chicle, the main constituent of chewing gum. Compounds extracted from the leaves have been shown to produce anti-diabetic, antioxidant and hypocholesterolemic (cholesterol-lowering) effects. ... Learn More

  10. MATTHIOLA ARBORESCENS ALBA

    Unlike the common garden stocks, the white form of the fragrant tree stock is rarely encountered. Slowly, with age, it develops a trunk supporting several radiating rosettes of grey lanceolate leaves, each rosette producing spikes of sweetly perfumed white flowers. It is hardy and long lived in a sheltered well-drained spot. ... Learn More

  11. MELIANTHUS VILLOSUS

    Curious maroon-brown flowers, with chocolate bracts and green stamens, produce unusual inflated fruits above attractive, musky-perfumed deeply-fingered foliage on this very rare plant. In addition, this South African native provides many odd details in its life cycle. Compared with the more well known and widely available Melianthus major, this seldom-seen beauty is more reasonably sized for the smaller garden, and has lovely fuzzy apple green leaves as opposed to the glaucous grey-green of the major. The nectar-filled flowers are intricately veined bizarre beauties of green, brown, and deep purple, which are followed by large cubical green seed pods that are puffed up, and pop like a balloon when pressed. The black nectar bulges out of the mouth of the flower, spilling out as the lower flowers on the spikes slowly rotate from right side up to upside down over the course of a day. Melianthus are apparently the only genus in the plant world that have this mysterious rotation, which would make a perfect subject for time lapse photography. ... Learn More

  12. MELICYTUS OBOVATUS

    "New Zealand Shrubby Violet". Yes, a member of the violet family! A dwarf evergreen shrub, with small oval leaves, resembling a box bush. Tiny clusters of perfumed yellow-green flowers slowly turn to white and purple berries. A slow growing treasure. ... Learn More

  13. MOLTKIA PETRAEA

    An exceptionally choice and rare dwarf plant with pink buds opening to deepest violet-blue flowers. Stems bear oblong-lance-shaped, linear leaves which are dark blue-green above and white beneath. One of the best-ever alpine house and show plants, this fabulous miniature semi-evergreen sub-shrub originates from the mountains of Yugoslavia, Albania and Greece. ... Learn More

  14. MORINGA PTERYGOSPERMA

    This fast-growing, drought-resistant tree, native to the southern foothills of the Himalayas in north western India is widely cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Hanging clusters of fragrant, orchid-like flowers later become hanging fruits which are three-sided brown capsules holding dark brown, globular seeds which have three whitish, papery wings and are dispersed by wind and water and are sometimes eaten like peas or roasted like nuts. The whitish-grey bark is surrounded by thick cork, and in cultivation the trunk is often cut back annually to 1–2 meters and allowed to regrow, and the pods and leaves thus remain within arm's reach. ...

  15. MULBERRY

    Mulberries never really arrived commercially as a fruit, because they are just too delicate to travel when ripe. In Summer the fruits mature to a purplish-red, when they should be picked and eaten soon afterwards and treat them with care as they crumble easily. The fruit colour is derived from health-giving anthocyanins, and their flavour truly is sublime, as they are packed with lots of sweet juice. In addition this really is a truly beautiful ornamental tree, in spring and summer the foliage positively glows, whilst in the autumn and winter the stark, gnarled framework of branches looks absolutely stunning. ...
