Centranthus ruber NCG 092 Centranthus ruber

A classic cottage garden plant with delicate sprays of white, pink or red flowers held above grey green foliage. Perfectly happy in poor, stony, chalky soil, but is will tolerate other more-or-less neutral soil types. Although a perennial, perhaps better treated as a biennial as older plants tend to become…

Cephalaria gigantea NCG 353 Cephalaria gigantea

This stunning perennial scabious is perfect for the back of the border as it can grow as high as 2.5m. Blooming during the summer, the strongly textured flowers are a delicate pale yellow.

Cerastium tomentosum NCG 438 Cerastium tomentosum

This evergreen, mat-forming perennial has small, grey-green leaves and produces a veritable carpet of small white blooms in late spring through to early summer. A wonderful plant to grow at the front of borders or tumbling over walls. It requires very free-draining soil as it does not like its roots…

Chamaemelum syn. Anthemis nobile syn. nobilis 'Flore Pleno' NCG 320 Chamaemelum syn. Anthemis nobile syn. nobilis 'Flore Pleno'
Double flowered Chamomile

Delightful in all respects, this highly scented double-flowered form of perennial chamomile has feathery leaves and inch-wide, creamy-white blooms. Best planted in containers or at the edge of borders, where, when brushed against, both leaves and flowers release their strong, sweet, apple-like fragrance. NOTE: Depending on season, plants are sometimes…

Chasmanthium Syn. uniola latifolium NCG 235 Chasmanthium Syn. uniola latifolium
Northern Sea Oats, Spangle Grass

The photograph really does not do this delightful grass justice! Growing to a maximum of a metre or so (usually somewhat less), the erect stems resemble miniature bamboo in their growth habit. The seed heads are, however, quite different, being delicate, flat, diamond shapes - almost like spear heads -…

Chrysanthemum rubellum 'Mrs Jessie Cooper' NCG 423 Chrysanthemum rubellum 'Mrs Jessie Cooper'
Chrysanthemum 'Mrs Jessie Cooper'

Chrysanthemums have never been my favourite plants, but this one is an exception! A very hardy variety, this compact plant has dark-green, lobed foliage which contrasts well with the deep-pink, narrow-petalled flowers that appear from summer right through to late autumn. Chrysanthemums are good companion plants as they contain the…

Clematis tangutica NCG 016 Clematis tangutica
Golden Clematis

This beautiful perennial climber scrambles happily over trellis or support on a wall and provides a profusion of bright yellow lantern-like flowers throughout the summer, followed by attractive seed heads that resemble silvery tassels. Provision of shade at the roots is advisable, particularly in very sunny positions. If space is…

Clematis viticella 'Chatsworth' NCG 509 Clematis viticella 'Chatsworth'
Italian leather flower, Purple clematis, Virgin's bower 'Chatsworth'

A wild form of clematis originating from southern Europe, with nodding, pale-mauve flowers with four, or occasionally five, petals (or, more accurately, tepals), each having a darker stripe down the middle. A good choice for scrampling over walls or large shrubs in a spot offering some shade.

Commelina dianthifolia NCG 575 Commelina dianthifolia
Bird-bill day flower, Widow's tears

One of my most exciting finds of 2016! This little-known plant is fully hardy when planted in well-drained soil, where over time it naturalises to produce drifts. One-inch diameter, striking gentian-blue flowers rise from attractive, rich-green foliage from mid-summer. The flowers fade by the afternoon, but are replaced daily by…

Corydalis elata  'Blue Summit' NCG 555 Corydalis elata 'Blue Summit'
Blue fumitory 'Blue Summit'

Much easier to grow than the related Corydalis flexuosa, this beautiful woodland plant produces spikes of rich, dark-blue flowers with a coconut-like scent above finely divided light-green foliage with tiny magenta markings at the base and tips of the leaflets. Delightful!

Corydalis temulifolia syn. quantmeyerana 'Chocolate Stars' NCG 418 Corydalis temulifolia syn. quantmeyerana 'Chocolate Stars'
Corydalis 'Chocolate Stars'

A hard to find Corydalis with unique chocolate brown spring foliage which fades to green by summer. The leaf edge is nicely serrated and very pale lavender flowers are borne in early summer. If grown in shade with ample soil moisture, it will not go summer dormant. Grows 12-16in high…

Originating in Australia, where it is perennial, this quirky hardy annual has a long flowering period, producing bright-yellow, ping pong-shaped flower clusters (glomerules), about an inch in diameter, on strong, straight, unbranched stems rising from basal rosettes of leaves. Excellent for use in both fresh and dried flower arrangements.

Dahlia Ex. 'Bishop of Auckland' NCG 297 Dahlia Ex. 'Bishop of Auckland'
Dahlia Ex. 'Bishop of Auckland'

The seeds or plants on offer are either from 'Bishop of Llandaff' or 'Bishop of Auckland'. Although they are not expected to breed true, all my own sowings have resulted in plants with black foliage and flowers that strongly resembe the parents. Although generally considered tender, dahlias will very often…
