Hot Summer Colour #beddingplants


Every year we have new varieties of bedding plants. Here are some of our choice varieties and a few old  favourites


Salvia Love and Wishes
 A new large Salvia. More for the border or a single variety in a pot. This will flower all summer and the colour is so rich. Approximately 1m tall.


Agaranthemum Anthemis Red
 Pots of Agaranthemums can't go wrong. Be adventurous why have white when you can have red!
Ivy Geranium Lilly
 Blue tones like these lends them self  so perfectly to plant with burgundy below and rich dark purple.
Ivy Geranium Tommy
 Its so deep you have got to love Tommy.
Nemisa Magenta
 This colour has to be seen because it has an apricot tone combined with a purply magenta tone. Looks amazing next to rusty foliage and lends its self to tangy orangeand purple colour schemes.
Nemisa Pink Fantasy
 This is a two toned pant and brings all the soft pinks and mauve's together making it very flexible
Nemisa Lime
 Soft lime looks amazing with purple petunias.
Nemisa Purple

 This is the richest nemisa. Fantastic with dark purple heliotrope.
Petunia Indian Summer






 The new hot petunia that has fully lived up to expectations. Yellow fading to apricot. Plants beautifully with orange and limy yellow. Trails to 30cm.
Petunia tumbelina Priscilla
 An amazing double flowering Petunia

Petunia Banhoffee Pie

 An incredibly striking petunia purple and black, which will trail to 30cm.

Cosmos
Pop this into the gaps in your borders or fill terracotta pots it always gorgeous.
 
Salvia Amisad




Stands about 1m tall and flower profusely all summer. In warmer area both this and Love and Wishes may over winter.

Salvia Hot Lips
Last but not least Hot Lips. This became populuar a few years ago. At Chelsea it was listed as a perennial. Its hot its very pretty and the white lips appear as the plant matures. I often plant three or five in a pot to stand alone and they look great as I would with dahlias. The new pink equivalent is called Dayglow and that is a blue toned pink.
