Rudbeckia Happy Smile
|Rudbeckia Summerina Yellow|
I started with rudbeckias and don't we just love them. New varieties are appearing every year along with good old reliable Goldstrum and it now comes in dwarf forms.
|Hellenium Morheim Beauty|
A reliable old favourite a daisy in a rich coppery colour. This flowers into autumn.
|Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus'|
Echinacea is simply a wonderful flower for wildlife as the cone makes a perfect landing platform. Echinacea purpurea is the most likely to survive our climate.
Echinacea Salsa Red
|Gaillardia F1 Mesa Bright Bicolour|
Another sunning bright daisy in the Asteraceae family. Gaillardias need a well drained sunny spot.
|Verconicastrum virginicum 'Facination'|
|Coreopsis Bengal Tiger|
|Campanula latifolia Prichards Variety|
Another great plant for sun or part shade. Probably best suits mid border planting. Self supporting and and long flowering if you snip back any fading flower heads to the up and coming new shoots lower down the stem.
|Anemone Wild Swan|
|Leucanthemum xsuperbum |
|Scabious Flutter Rose Pink|
Above we have the perfect blues. Lavender,agapanthus and Salvia nemorosa Caradonna. I love this combination. All can equally go in easy perennial containers. I have many pots of agapanthus as they thrive on neglect which is what happens to the garden of a Nursery owner who has very little time for their own garden! These all appreciation sunny positions and well drained soil.
|Phlox paniculata Light Blue|
|Geranium Orkney Cherry|
