Anigozanthus Bush Eclipse
Anigozanthus fuliginosa 'Bush Eclipse'
Native to Western Australia, Kangaroo paws make excellent garden and patio subjects and wonderful cutflowers for a bold indoor statement. Bush Eclipse flowers later in summer and spot flowers almost year round, certainly to its own timetable. It has a high natural disease tolerance and needs little water - summer droughts eat dust!
An outstanding variety with pure white flowers borne in profusion all year round and lush green foliage. With its cascading habit, Blizzard makes an excellent hanging basket plant. Prefers dappled shade shade. Prune lightly between flushes. Feed with a controlled release fertiliser regularly and do not let it dry out over summer.
Breathtaking; deep rich green foliage generously overlaid with a speckled and deeply veined frost. From late spring tiny clusters of baby-blue "forget-me-not" flowers abound just above the foliage. Excellent choice for underplanting evergreens and brightening shady corners. In a container it brings pleasure near to, or on the patio.
One of the best and most rewarding of all the ground-hugging bellflowers. From late spring it produces an outstanding show of clusters of vivid-violet-blue flowers. These last well into summer. An excellent Ďup frontí perennial thatís hard to walk past when in flower.
Always attractive with glossy, medium-green foliage looking good all year round. In spring the compact bushes are smothered in white blossom, rather like big orange blossoms. Hence the common name of Mexican orange blossom - itís a native of Mexico.
An enchanting perennial with 3cm velvet flowers having both the colour and scent of dark-chocolate from late-spring to autumn. A scent that's strongest in the evening, just enough to tempt you to a little post-dinner indulgence! Tuber-forming member of the dahlia family whose foliage dies back over winter.
Golden Spirit is a unique new 'Smoke Bush' from Europe, and one with a difference; brilliant lime to golden-yellow foliage from late in spring. As autumn progresses this fresh foliage hue is replaced by vivid coral, orange and red tones. Later in summer it's topped with usual plumes of smoke-like flowers.
A dwarf variety of coneflower forming a compact mound. In mid-summer numerous stems of mid pink flowers emerge with a second flush in autumn. The petals are reflexed backwards away from the centre of the flower; alluring the butterflies. Remove spent flowersas required. 60cm tall and 40cm wide.
A compact shrub growing to form a large mound that is covered with small red flowers in summer. Good as a low hedge which may be clipped to the desired height. Hardy and easy to grow; suits sun or part shade, indifferent to soil conditions and tolerant of coastal conditions. Left unclipped it forms a rounded bush to about 1 metre tall.
Eucomis Sparkling Burgundy
Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy'
Here's a choice plant for a summer garden and a touch of tropical beauty. Rich wine-red strape-like foliage provides a distinctive look through summer. This is topped off with a bright red pineapple-like flower - a bold statement however you use it.
