MISCANTHUS nepalensis

MISCANTHUS nepalensis

My favourite Miscanthus - pale green foliage on a shorter plant, with long arching stems and silky buff flowers. Very different from other Miscanthus, and good for a small garden.

1.20m £5.00

CROCOSMIA x crocosmiiflora 'Gloria'

Shorter plant, with red flowers and an orange centre.

60cm £5.00

CROCOSMIA x crocosmiiflora 'Gloria'
CROCOSMIA 'Mex'

CROCOSMIA 'Mex'

Dramatic, large red outward-facing flowers well above the foliage, on dark purple stems. Vigorous, and definitely one of the best!

1.20m £5.00

SANGUISORBA 'Ivory Towers'

Formerly S. sp. Witt ex Engeland. One of my all-time favourite Sanguisorbas, deserves a proper name! Early, long-flowering white bottlebrushes all through the plant. Stands up in a gale!

SANGUISORBA 'Ivory Towers'

SEDUM 'Chocolate Sauce'

Shiny, dark maroon emerging foliage on red stems, deepens to a glossy chocolate as it matures. Small pink flowers in autumn. Different from S. 'Chocolate'.
