Welcome to the Paddock Plants website

We are a family-run plant nursery based near Southampton in Hampshire offering an interesting range of perennials, grasses, ferns and shrubs, including some more unusual varieties or plants new to the UK market, all at affordable prices. All our plants are grown peat-free in 2 litre and some in 1 litre pots with 12-14 month slow-release fertiliser and, other than a few more tender specimens, are overwintered in the open. We can deliver locally by our own transport and send plants by courier delivery throughout most of the United Kingdom. You can keep up to date with our latest news here.

    Definitely one for the chocoholic, but you don't need to be addicted to the cocoa bean to appreciate this truly individual rose. The buds open orangey russet then develop into richly scented double blooms in a distinctive smoky light chocolate colouration. And it's a floribunda so flowers right through the season. Delicious, we say. Good shape and disease...

    A real rarity and a spectacular one, at that: this plant forms a rosette of long pointed glossy leaves rather like a yucca and, in summer, throws up tall shocking pink stems from which dangle red cylindrical bells tipped with green. Quite unlike anything else seen in your average garden! Likes the sun. Fertile well drained soil. 4-5 ft. in flower. 2 litre...

    There are other variegated polemoniums out there, but this is undisputably the best of the lot. With creamy white edges to the leaflets, it looks terrific all season (with some pink hints in cool temperatures). But when the pale lavender blue flowers are added to the mix, seemingly hovering around the clump of foliage – wow! Sun or semi-shade. Any...

    Another fabulous shrub from Chile, and a real show-off of a plant, brought to this country in the mid 19th century. Commonly called the lantern tree on account of the clusters of pendant urn-shaped flowers which are a brilliant carmine red and dangle from long stalks from early to mid-summer. The dark green foliage is narrow, glossy and leathery in...

    Each flower lasts only one day – hence the name Day Lily – but the large exotic looking flowers just keep on coming throughout the summer months. It should be compulsory for every garden to have at least one of these wonderful plants. Whoopy has large wine-purple flowers with near-black centres and a green throat. Fabulously dark and brooding. Full sun....

    The ultimate in architectural plants, with huge palmate leaves with claw-like lobes. Quite extraordinary. White flowers in the autumn, too. By nature a woodlander, so doesn't want to be in too exposed a position. We find it very hardy down in the south, but it will regrow from the base if cut down by hard frosts. Any well drained soil. 6 feet plus. 2...

    A less commonly seen species of buddleia, and flowering at the other end of the season, Buddleia Globosa - aka the golfball bush - is a large rounded shrub with crinkled dark green lance shaped leaves. Early summer sees it festooned with orange to yellow spherical flowerheads: quite a spectacle if you've not seen one before. Or even if you have. Sunny...

    Yes, this spectacular hibiscus is fully hardy. Yet the saucer shaped and sized (8 to 10 inches) ruffled pink flowers with dark crimson centres that appear from mid-summer to autumn, accentuated by the coppery tinted foliage might suggest otherwise. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil, but not too dry. 3 feet + 2 litre pot.

    A splendid specimen plant with something to offer all season: the large crinkled fingered leaves à la horse chestnut are tinged reddish bronze in spring and autumn, and in early to mid-summer the tall plumes of soft cherry pink flowers on vivid red stems will certainly demand your attention. Quite fabulous in every respect. Sun or semi-shade. Moist soil....

    READY SPRING 2016. A very special Jacob's Ladder, this one. A compact plant, forming a neat mound of the usual ferny fingered foliage, from late spring onwards, short upright stems holding clusters of clear blue flowers which are unique within the genus in being fragrant. Very, very nice indeed. Semi-shade preferred. Any reasonable soil. 15 in. 2 litre pot.

    From the United States, where it is known as the sweet pepper bush, this delightful variety is an absolute stunner of a shrub. The glossy green foliage is nice enough, but its big moment is those 6 weeks in mid to late summer when it is covered in deep pink flower spikes like so many clove-scented candles. Quite extraordinarily lovely. Sun or semi-shade....

    Probably the best of the bunch in this new series of compact red hot pokers, this one - true to its rather lengthy moniker - produces a succession of reddish orange pokers with bases in a yummy vanilla shade. It will do this over an extended period from mid-summer to autumn, much longer than traditional varieties. Nice elegant grassy foliage, too. Likes...
