Welcome to the Norfolk Cottage Garden Seeds & Plants Shop This is an alphabetical listing of the Yellow cottage garden plants you selected.


 
IMPORTANT NOTE:
At times, especially during the summer, plants may be cut back or pinched out if they are too far advanced to ship whole. This encourages annuals and biennials to produce extra flowering stems, so no bad thing! Perennials will establish well for next year, but may or may not flower this year, depending on species. In some instances top growth may be woody or sparce (e.g. Anthemis tinctoria), but don't worry, the plants are perfectly healthy and will soon produce fresh foliage! Please contact me if you would like to enquire about specific plants.

Nasturtium peregrinum NCG 528 Nasturtium peregrinum
Canary creeper

Currently unavailable

This pretty annual climber will happily scramble over fences and trellis, though you may wish to provide some string to help it on its way. The pretty, fringed, yellow flowers appear in profusion during the summer and the lobed, pale-green foliage is also very attractive. Good for hiding eyesores!

Tobacco plant (langsdorffii)

Oenothera biennis NCG 470 Oenothera biennis
Seed 1 packet

£1.95

 
Evening primrose

Although generally thought of as a biennial, this favourite herbal and garden flower often survives as a perennial. In its second year of growth it produces masses of bright yellow blooms, which are delicately scented, on tall, branching stems.

Evening Primrose 'Apricot Delight'

Delightful and highly recommended!

The blooms of this (sometimes short-lived) perennial variety of evening primrose are scented in the evenings, the fragrance being reminiscent of a combination of lemons and lilies. It has a rather more lax, open habit than the more common Oenothera biennis. The flower buds are a soft creamy-yellow, darkening to…

Bronze leaved yellow sorrel, Procumbent yellow sorrel

A low-growing plant with dark, bronze-red leaves and small yellow flowers followed by upright seed capsules, this variety of oxalis, which is perennial, can be invasive more due to self-seeding than its creeping habit, but if kept in check is a valuable addition to the garden. It grows well in…

Yellow Tree Peony

This delightful plant is usually sold when much older - and far more expensive! But my own was self sown and flowered within four years, so if carefully looked after, these young plants should reward with their first blooms, which are single and a lovely clear yellow, within two years.…

Paeonia mlokosewitschii AGM NCG 260 Paeonia mlokosewitschii AGM
Mollie the Witch,

Sorry - sold out

This gorgeous paeony, with its blue-green foliage and large, soft creamy-yellow flowers and rich golden stamens, followed by interesting seed pods that are crimson red inside with blue-black seeds, is a much recommended herbaceous perennial. It can be challenging to grow from seed if not sown absolutely fresh, but well…

Papaver lapponicum subsp. occidentale NCG 241 Papaver lapponicum subsp. occidentale
Lapland poppy

Currently unavailable

I was given these seeds as Papaver alpinum Kerneri (Karawanken Alpine poppy) but I'm pretty sure they were misnamed and that this is in fact the variety named above. Whatever its true name, this diminutive poppy is most attractive, with soft yellow flowers on short, softly-haired stems and rich-green, finely…

Papaver miyabeanum NCG 502 Papaver miyabeanum
Japanese poppy

Currently unavailable

Although strictly speaking a perennial, this very pretty alpine poppy is best treated as an annual or biennial. Just a few inches tall, with soft greenish-yellow blooms and basal rosettes of attractive, deeply divided foliage, followed by lovely seed heads, this is a pretty plant for containers or a rock…

Corn Poppy 'Falling in Love'

Seed 1 packet - 50 seeds approx.

£2.25

 
Cinquefoil

Highly recommended!

This pale-yellow variety of cinquefoil is a wildflower that makes a lovely addition to the cottage garden but is relatively unknown and rarely to be found for sale. It flowers for many months, from Spring and right through to the first frosts. Will gently self-seed.

Primula vulgaris NCG 375 Primula vulgaris
Plant 1 clump (equiv. 9cm pot)

Common primrose

Spring would not be Spring without the primrose! The soft yellow blooms of this familiar native wildflower arise on short stems from basal rosettes of crinkly, light-green leaves. Seeds itself around happily but is not difficult to control.

Ranunculus lingua 'Grandiflorus' NCG 226 Ranunculus lingua 'Grandiflorus'
Seed 1 packet - 30 seeds approx.

£2.25

 
Large-flowered Greater Spearwort

This is a lovely aquatic plant which, in its natural habitat, favours shallow streams or river banks. It can be grown as a marginal plant in ponds, but is generally not suited to small ponds as it can be rather invasive. Clear yellow buttercup-like flowers appear in mid-summer above tall,…

Black-eyed Susan, Coneflower, Gloriosa Daisy

This perennial Rudbeckia is a trouble-free plant that makes a stunning statement when planted en masse in the hot bed! The deep yellow flowers with black eyes stand on tall, wiry stems and are a very useful cut flower. Prefers full sun but will tolerte part shade.

Rudbeckia hirta 'Prairie Sun' NCG 077 Rudbeckia hirta 'Prairie Sun'
Black-eyed Susan, Coneflower, Gloriosa Daisy

Sorry - out of stock!

The 'eyes' of this stunning Black-eyed Susan are in fact a striking lime green, surrounded by rich deep-yellow petals radiating out to pale yellow at the tips. A studding addition to the summer hot bed and a wonderful cut flower! Happiest in full sun, but will tolerate part shade.

Black-eyed Susan, Cutleaf Coneflower, Gloriosa Daisy

This magnificent, very tall - 2 metres or more - rudbeckia is a good choice for the back of the border. The large, bright yellow blooms have striking lime green cones and are borne on straight stems clothed in dark green foliage. A beautiful cut flower. Although my plants produce…

Sisyrinchium, yellow

Small pale yellow flowers with deeper yellow eyes on spikes above soft, greyish-green, sword-shaped leaves. Although strictly speaking a perennial, this plant seeds itself happily and the younger plants develop quickly and are often more attractive.

Weeping kowhai, Small-leaf kowhai

A very attractive small, semi-evergreen tree, native to New Zealand. Produces masses of pendulous, waxy, yellow blooms in spring. Needs a sheltered spot (against a wall is ideal) and full sun to grow as a tree, because although it is hardy to -15C/5F, it can be knocked back somewhat by…
