    ROSA RUBIGINOSA

    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.

  2. Rosa rugosa
    New

    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

  4. RUBUS SPECTABILIS

    This attractive garden-worthy shrub, with perennial, not biennial woody stems (unlike many other rubus), is grown not only for its attractive, dazzling-red flowers, but for the juicy fruits which mature in late summer to early autumn resembling large yellow to orange-red raspberries 1.5–2 cm long, which are used to make jams and pies in their North American home. These fruits are also called Russian Raspberries or Salmon Berries. Traditionally, the berries were eaten mixed with salmon roe, hence their name, but we do not recommend this! ... Learn More

  5. RUSCUS ACULEATUS

    This mysterious, and rarely-seen plant has rigid, branched stems bearing spiny leaves, and bears greenish flowers followed by red berries throughout the winter. And quite incredibly, it is a member of the lily family! For hundreds of years herbalists have used butcher's broom in the treatment of various ailments. And presumably butchers-of-old used branches to clean their work tops with the sharp foliage? For the chemists amongst you, Butcher's Broom contains 0.8-1.5% quinolizidine alkaloids, principally sparteine which inhibits the passing of sodium ions across the cell membrane and thus is an effective anti-arrhythmic substance. It is is frequently used in its sulphate form as an oxytocic drug - a substance which stimulates contraction of the uterine smooth muscle. sparteine also appears to extend the diastole. But we do not recommend experimenting without first consulting your doctor! ... Learn More

  6. SAMBUCUS 'BLACK FRILLS'

    Seeds collected from the very best cultivars of the dark, narrow leaved forms of the fragrant-flowered elder such as 'Black Lace'. Seedlings will vary, with less than half having dark or very dark foliage, and pink or dark pink flowers. It is very important indeed to remember that many green seedlings will turn darker as the plants mature through the summer in their first year, so do not discard all green-leaved seedlings. ...

  7. SAMBUCUS NIGRA

    This shrub or small tree can be found growing wild just about everywhere in Britain, the fragrant, flat topped, cream flower heads appear in May and June followed by the purple-black berries in September. The flowers are used to make the delicately-perfumed elder flower champagne, whilst the berries are used for wine. It used to be said that if you had an elder tree in the garden you had a medicine chest, or even a larder! The pith of the stems is easily pushed out and whistles were made from the hollow stems, the belief being that the sweetest sounding ones were made from trees that grew away from the sound of cock-crow. Pop guns were also made out of the stems by country children. ... Learn More

  8. SAMBUCUS NIGRA DARK LEAF FORMS

    A generous packet of ready-stratified seeds from dark-leaved cultivars such as 'Black Beauty'. The leaves of these plants will vary a lot in colour from darkest purple through browns to green, and also in shape, from very finely divided ones to normal broad-leaved forms. Although less than half of these seedlings will have the darker leaves and more desirable pink, rather than white flowers, it is important to allow the plants to mature as the leaves often do not reveal their final colouring until the second year. ...

  9. SAMBUCUS SACHALINENSIS

    White, fragrant spring flowers give way to dazzling, pendulous clumps of pillar-box red berries, which shine with great intensity. A great improvement on our own black-fruited elder and now you can make red elderberry wine! Collected on our Russian trip to Sakhalin (RBS0265). ... Learn More

The flowers are dioecious, individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant, so both male and female plants must be grown if seed is required.

  11. SENNA ACCLINUS

    Bright golden yellow cup-shaped flowers open on this dwarf shrub, and later mature into 12-15cm long black pods. It is found in coastal districts and the adjacent tablelands of New South Wales from the Illawarra to Queensland, on the edges of subtropical and dry rainforest, where it is now very rare in the wild. It is a special plant because not only do two species of butterflies breed on it, the Small Grass-yellow (Eurema Smilax) and the Yellow Migrant (Catopsilia Gorgophone) but it is also very bee friendly. ...

  12. SENNA CORYMBOSA

    This attractive, fast-growing South American shrub bears racemes of bright yellow flowers on a bush which forms a broad rounded shape that responds well to pruning, when it responds with a dramatic display of its distinctive five-petaled flowers that are a magnet to pollinators. It is cold-tolerant and will take a few degrees of frost but is not truly hardy in Great Britain except in frost-free coastal areas. It does well if grown in a large container and is brought indoors in the winter to a warm glasshouse or conservatory. It can lose its leaves in periods of cold weather and all watering should stop during the winter to give it a rest. ... Learn More

  14. SESBANIA GRANDIFLORA ALBA

    This fast-growing tropical tree bears attractive sprays of the unusual, pure white, parrot-bill flowers (usually red). Later appear the huge seed pods, resembling flat, long, thin green beans. The tree thrives under full exposure to sunshine and although best grown in hot countries will do well in a large pot in good light indoors. Indigenous from Malaysia to North Australia, it is cultivated in many parts of India where it has a large number of traditional uses. ... Learn More
