    Large fragrant nocturnal white flowers open on stems bearing enormous mature leaves which can reach a length and width of up to thirty five centimetres.

  4. RHODODENDRON MACABEANUM

    This is not just a superlative rhododendron, it is in fact one of the most magnificent plants one can grow. Maturing as a large evergreen shrub, it can, in many years, become a tree, with enormous, magnificent, glossy dark green leaves up to 30cm in length, with whitish down beneath. The large flowers, in dense rounded trusses, are bell-shaped, cream to pale yellow with a purple blotch in the throat.

  7. ROSA CANINA

    The lovely "Dog Rose" is native to Europe, North West Africa and western Asia. It makes a perfect addition to a wild garden and is often used for hedging. The flowers are usually pale pink, but can vary from deep pink to white, maturing into an oval 1.5–2 cm red-orange fruit, or hip or hep! The flesh of the fruit is noted for its high vitamin C level, and is used to make syrup, tea and marmalade, and indeed it has been grown or encouraged in the wild for the production of vitamin C from its fruit (often as rose-hip syrup), especially during conditions of scarcity or during wartime. ...

  8. ROSA 'GEORDIE GIANT'

    The normal wild "Dog Rose" is a very pretty plant with sweetly fragrant flowers opening over a long period until mid autumn. This unusually dwarf compact form form was discovered growing on the sea cliffs near to Newcastle in the UK. The flowers open to nearly twice the size of the usual form and have correspondingly increased levels of perfume. The bright red autumn heps, or seed pods, are also larger than normal. Seedlings may vary but expect some lovely forms. ... Learn More

    Charming single pink rose flowers, with a white centre behind a mop of prominent stamens, displayed against bright green foliage with serrated edges and a fragrance of apples.

  12. ROSA RUGOSA

    Large shocking pink single rose flowers, with petals like tissue paper, stand out like beacons against the deeply-veined, large bright green leaves ultimately giving way to fat, glossy orange hips that are just as attractive as the flowers. This is a fast-growing rose with a dense and bushy habit that makes it a good choice for a summer-flowering hedge with autumn interest. The extremely thorny stems make it a good deterrent barrier too. ... Learn More

  13. ROYSTONEA REGIA

    The national tree of Cuba is a spectacular palm tree and according to some authorities is probably the most beautiful palm in the world. Unlike most other palms, the Royal Palm tree will grow rapidly if they are well watered and fertilized. Their straight, flag-pole like gun metal-grey trunks are striking, and the deep green crownshafts make for a very tropical, elegant look. native to southern Florida, Mexico and parts of Central America, Roystonea regia has been planted throughout the tropics and subtropics as an ornamental plant and in addition the seed is used as a source of oil and for livestock feed, whilst the leaves are used for thatching and the wood for construction. ...

  14. RUBUS COCKBURNIANUS

    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
