Annual toadflax 'Flamenco'

This versatile little annual, which is native to North Africa, but easy to grow in our climate, should be better known!

Lysimachia ciliata 'Firecracker' NCG 394 Lysimachia ciliata 'Firecracker'
Loosestrife 'Firecracker'

The picture does not really do this plant justice. Attractive, deep-purple rosettes of rounded leaves appear in early spring, followed by tall spikes of more pointed leaves which bear small, yellow, star-shaped flowers along their length. Although moist - even wet - soil is recommended, mine grow in a dry,…

Mina Lobata, Spanish Flag

Recently re-classified as a member of the Ipomoea genus (Ipomoea versicolor) and sometimes referred to as Quamoclit lobata, but still more widely recognised as Mina lobata... whatever you prefer to call it, this stunning half-hardy annual climbing plant is a must! Attractive foliage is followed by spikes of flowers that…

Nasturtium peregrinum NCG 528 Nasturtium peregrinum
Canary creeper

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!

Evening Primrose 'Apricot Delight'

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.

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…

Paeonia lutea syn. delavayi var ludlowii NCG 315 Paeonia lutea syn. delavayi var ludlowii
Ludlow's tree peony, 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.…

Japanese poppy

Although strictly speaking a perennial, this very pretty alpine poppy is best treated as an annual or biennial.
