A small growing grass long associated with the aesthetic of Japanese gardens. Ideal for a shady spot, which gets morning sun and isn’t allowed to dry out, or for planting in a pot in light shade. It makes a graceful plant with fine arching golden-yellow leaves.
Day lilies which repeat flower are always useful plants. Deep rich cranberry pink, flared flowers are produced, several to the stem, from mid spring until quite late in the autumn. I divide and replant dwarf day lilies every 3 or 4 years.
This frost hardy Hibiscus is one of the best new plants we've grown. H. paramutabilis makes a 200cm tall by 150cm wide shrub which produces large, rich dark rose-pink flowers from mid-summer until winter. One of the best flowering shrubs.
One of the most beautiful of the frost hardy Hibiscus which has startlingly beautiful white flowers with a magenta-red centre. Happy in any sunny spot in the garden. A good cutting back by about a third will keep it healthy and floriferous. I grow it as a small standard.
‘Candlelight’ is an outstanding new variety of hardy, sun tolerant Hydrangeas Large conical creamy white flowers are displayed on sturdy red stems. The flowers age to shades of pink. ‘Candlelight’ has handsome green foliage which turns to attractive autumnal tones.
‘Kyushu’ is a tall vigorous variety which quite early in the season produces large white panicles which remain white for the whole season. We grow all Hydrangea paniculata cultivars in sunny spots protected from hot winds.
