The best white flowered Bergenia we know with good tough foliage and the old leaves colouring well in winter. The flower stems are held well above the leaves and have horizontal secondary stems which display the white flowers beautifully.
A newly imported dwarf growing variety, with quite narrow glossy evergreen leaves which turn rich plum during cold weather. The flower heads are large in relation to the foliage clumps and the flowers are bright coral pink.
‘Sea Heart’, a stunning new introduction, has strong textured heart shaped silver leaves with green edging and green veins. 50cm tall stems of blue for-get-me-not flowers are produced during late spring and early summer.
‘Silver Heart’ is a wonderful new introduction with silver heart shaped leaves lightly veined green. The leaves are strongly textured and stand heat and humidity well. Blue for-get-me-not flowers are produced on 50cm tall stems during late spring and early summer.
A really good foliage and flowering plant for shade. Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ has silver, heart shaped basal leaves which are hidden during spring and early summer by clouds of true blue for-get-me-not flowers held well above the foliage on thin wiry stems.
I remember a beautifully grown plant of Buddleja alternifolia grown as standard in the walled garden at Cruden Farm. The arching willowy branches were densely foliaged and in full bloom and what pleasure it gave.
These ‘Buzz’™ series are the first truly dwarf Buddlejas to be released on the Australian market. Suited to growing in pots as well as small gardens, it took ten years of dedicated and painstaking breeding work to develop these award winning plants.
