    An unusual but useful alternative to Petunias. A spreading succulent plant, its bright, sky-blue trumpets with a creamy yellow throat appear in profusion all summer, studding the top of the bushy, creeping stems. Long blooming and low maintenance, it’s easy to grow from seed and is tolerant of drought. It’s perfect for using for ground cover, to edge paths and in hanging baskets. Prefers well-drained soil in full sun. Deadhead spent blooms to prolong flowering. ... Learn More

    An extremely rare plant only recently having been "re-discovered" after being thought to be extinct in the wild. This gorgeous, heavenly scented, almost constant-flowering plant forms a strong, vigorous, hemispherical mound of snow-white blooms. It can, if desired, also tastefully twirl itself around taller neighbours, even turning into a climber at times! One of the world's most fragrant flowers, at night it comes into its own when it produces copious quantities of vanilla & liquorice perfume! In the right conditions it is a true perennial plant, and one of the ancestors of modern Petunias, harking back to 1823 when a brave explorer plucked it from the mouth of the Rio de la Plata in South America, but alas, it was soon lost again! Its astonishing sweet scent makes it an essential part of the evening garden, or grown in a large pot indoors, and given room to expand, either upwards or cascading, it will fill the house with perfume every night! In the wild it is pollinated by hawk moths and other nocturnal insects, and amazingly tough it shrugs off rain storms outside with no marking or dissolving as most petunias are prone to do. We regret that an extremely small percentage of another plant, the RED Petunia excerta, may have contaminated this seed batch. Also a rare plant, this seed can germinate much sooner than this slow-germinating white one. Early seedlings may therefore produce some red plants. Do NOT discard the seed pot as Petunia axillaris is VERY SLOW indeed to germinate. We apologise for this situation but sell it with this proviso. A customer also reported a hybrid flower! We are sorry, we have undisciplined bees too! ... Learn More

    Countless star-shaped lipstick-red flowers open over a very long season into late autumn on bushy, spreading plants. A new and very rare flower, it was only discovered as recently as 2007 in the remote jungles of Brazil. When grown as a container plant in a sheltered spot, or even better in a conservatory, it is a true perennial and will continue opening its buds right through the winter making a dazzling display on a solid compact plant. This gorgeous species was under threat of extinction, with just 14 wild plants left in its native country. ... Learn More

    Our busy breeders have been at work again! We have crossed an attractive selection of modern petunias with the vigorous and fabulously-fragrant white Petunia axillaris. These new and exclusive plants are very vigorous and unlike modern dwarf varieties, these can scramble through low bushes giving an incredible effect. They will range from mauves, through purples and pinks to pure white, and large-flowered, delicately-marked bi-colours. All should be exceedingly perfumed, especially after the sun sets! You will almost certainly discover new novel flower forms when they bloom! Very few seeds collected. ... Learn More
