Clematis occidentalis NCG 509 Clematis occidentalis
Blue virginsbower, Bell rue

A wild form of clematis originating from the US, with nodding, blue-purple flowers with four petals (or, more accurately, tepals). A good choice for scrampling over walls or large shrubs in a spot offering some shade.

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.

Consolida ajacis NCG 017 Consolida ajacis
Larkspur, Annual Delphinium

More dainty than the related delphinium, larkspur produces pink or deep blue blooms freely throughout the summer months, on tall stems with finely cut, feathery foliage. Quite variable in height. A good cut flower, if you can bear to remove it from the garden, where it always looks so beautiful!…

A lovely variety of cosmos, with mid-pink, fully double flowers. For best effect plants should be as close to each other as 9 inches or so and planted en masse. Soil should be reasonably fertile, but if it is too rich, tall, lanky plants may result. As with most cosmos…

Cosmos, semi-double white

Masses of pure white, semi-double blooms with yellow centres (with perhaps the odd single) throughout the summer, on tall stems with finely divided foliage. Drought tolerant. Some say it is unnecessary to thin direct sown plants. Soil that is too rich may result in tall, lanky plants. I cannot guarantee…

Craspedia globosa 'Drumstick' NCG 301 Craspedia globosa 'Drumstick'
Billy Balls, Billy Buttons

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…

Datura stramonium NCG 234 Datura stramonium
Jimson Weed, Thorn Apple

Datura produces white, fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers and light green foliage, but the most striking part of the plant is its large spiky seed pods. They make a very interesting addition to dried flower arrangements. Although originating from warmer countries, this plant has become widely naturalised in the UK. HIGHLY POISONOUS!!!…

Delphinium requienii NCG 599 Delphinium requienii
Requin's larkspur

A beautiful plant which is seldom seen in the UK, Requin's larkspur produces spikes of soft, brownish-blue flowers, reminiscent of orchids, above attractive, shiny leaves (which, unlike those of other delphiniums, are said to be of no interest to slugs and snails). Usually grown as a biennial, but will flower…

Didiscus caeruleus, Lacy Series NCG 452 Didiscus caeruleus, Lacy Series
Lace flower, mixed

A most attractive (to pollinating insects as well as humans!), long-flowering annual. The umbels of blooms in soft shades of pink, blue, mauve and white are sweetly scented and make an excellent cut flower.

More info...

Digitalis grandiflora ambigua/macrantha AGM NCG 223 Digitalis grandiflora ambigua/macrantha AGM
Large yellow foxglove, Cream-coloured foxglove

This stunning plant is a perennial, but generally short-lived, so best treated as a biennial. Tall spikes of soft yellow, speckled flowers rise above a rosette of dark green leaves. It is lovely in a woodland setting, where the blooms light up shady corners, but will tolerate sun.

More info...

Digitalis lutea NCG 180 Digitalis lutea
Small foxglove

A lovely plant for woodland areas. Small, tubular yellow blooms are borne on delicate spikes - a much more dainty plant in all respects than the common pink foxglove. Although it will tolerate both sun and dry soil, this plant is happiest in rich, moist soil and dappled shade. Digitalis…
