A robust and fully hardy Diascia species, with open racemes of rose-pink flowers borne throughout summer and well into autumn. Heart-shaped green leaves form a loose mat of foliage. Likes a free-draining soil in sun. 25cm (10").
Dense stems to 18" to 24 in height, sometimes more but it can be pruned to keep lower (a bit like penstemons). Pink flowers throughout summer. Proved to be our hardiest diascia through the two coldest winters of 2009/2010. This is what one of our customers had to say about it this year "I purchased a Diascia personata from you after your excellent talk to Mid Staffs Hort Soc in October, 2011. I planted it front of my south-facing bungalow and expected it to just sit there, or die-back, until the following spring. Instead, it started to slowly grow in December and continued to do so despite temperatures down to -10C in February. It then flowered from early summer to December, growing to about 30x30 inches. I was most impressed!"
So glad to have this plant back in the fold. Deep rose-pink flowers on stiff, upward arching stems throughout summer and into autumn. 45cm (18") high. Any sunny site
Throughout the summer and until the first frosts, this plant produces masses of airy upright racemes covered in pale pink flowers. As with the previous species it is hardy and makes a good border plant. 30cm (12").
Mat-forming perennial growing just 15cm (6") in height. A mass of deep pink flowers throughout summer. Good in any sunny site.
Compact bulbous perennial with fern-like foliage and arching stems each bearing a few small, yellow-tipped, white flowers in spring. Lies dormant in summer. 15cm (6") high, 30cm (12") spread. Requires part shade and moist soil.
Clump-forming perennial with short, finely cut grey-green leaves. Arching sprays of salmon-pink flowers in spring and summer.
A highly desirable plant, not just for the attractive ash-like foliage, but also for the elegant panicles of clear white through to pink flowers borne in summer. The flowers are also popular with honeybees which ensure that the flowers are pollinated, resulting in the unusual winged seedpods that explosively expel their seed. All parts of the plant, particularly the foliage and stems exude aromatic oil reminiscent of lemons, which is not surprising since they both belong to the citrus family. Coming from Greece, it prefers a fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. 90cm (3ft).
This beautiful Angel's Fishing Rod grows just 45-60cm (18-24") high and has salmon-pink flowers in July-August. For a sunny spot in moisture-retentive soil.
