The Parham Garden Weekend is held in the grounds of Parham House in West Sussex over two days (surprise, surprise) in mid July.
A clump-forming perennial with long greyish-green grassy leaves. Sounds rather dull, but it certainly isn’t, as over a long period from midsummer into autumn elegant stems bear clusters of fragrant starry flowers in a fetching shade of pinky mauve. Full sun. Tolerates dry soils. 18-24 in.

This elegant plant forms a mound of fern-like deeply-divided foliage from which, in spring and early summer, emerge gracefully arching stems hung with heart-shaped flowers of pure glistening white. Sun or semi-shade. Moist soil. To 2 feet.
Danny our Briard likes nothing better than a good chew on a flowerpot or two. Doing so in the snow adds an extra dimension to the treat.
A delicate little specimen with lots of charm, this plant has little heart-shaped leaves, reddish-bronze in spring and autumn, among which appear star-shaped white flowers delicately flushed with pink on wiry stems. Prefers a little shade. Moist but well drained soil. 12 in.
A very special Jacob's Ladder, this one. A compact plant, forming a neat mound of the usual ferny fingered foliage, above which float, from late spring into summer, clear blue flowers which are unique within the genus in being fragrant. Very, very nice indeed. Semi-shade preferred. Moist but well drained soil. 15 in
