    A stunning modern take on that old favourite of the Romans, Acanthus Mollis or Bear’s Breeches. Glossy dark green leaves are splashed with creamy white and tall stiff spikes of pink and cream flowers rise up impressively in summer. As magnificent as a Palladian mansion but less expensive to maintain. Prefers a little shade. Any well drained soil. 48 in. 2...

    Neither shy nor retiring, Walther makes a bold statement with his silvery feathery foliage topped, from early to late summer, by flat flowerheads made up of multitudinous brick red or burnt orange florets with yellow centres. These eventually fade to an interesting terracotta sort of shade. Walther will swiftly establish a strong clump. What an obliging...

    A really rather splendid specimen, forming a clump of strong upright stems clothed in divided palmate leaves and producing a welcome late season display of large hooded deep blue flowers over a long period. Sun or semi-shade. Most soils. 3 ft+ 2 litre pot.

    Aconitum or Monkshood offers great value as a strong bloomer in that difficult late summer period: this is a rather shorter variety with two aces up its sleeve - larger than usual deep but clear blue flowers and leaves that start off a fetching shade of red in spring before maturing to glossy green. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. To 3 feet. 2...

    An absolutely stunning variety of this clump-forming perennial with striking divided black leaves (they start out green but change colour as they develop). In late summer the plant is topped by arching spikes of pure white scented flowers. Great name, too. Prefers some shade. Moist soil. To 3 ft. 2 litre pot.

    AVAILABLE EARLY SUMMER 2016. A splendid new variety of the plant known as the lily of the Nile which forms the usual large clump of strappy leaves from which rise tall sturdy stems carrying rounded flowerheads made up of myriad purple buds. When these burst open the florets have white petals with a central violet stripe offering a stunning two-tone...

    This splendid agapanthus is also known as Navy Blue, which rather gives away the intense dark colour of the large flowerheads which are held on erect stems over the strappy foliage in mid to late summer. One of the very best and very hardy. Full sun. Moist but well drained soil. 36 in. 2 litre pot.

    We like agastaches for their highly aromatic leaves and long flowering period. Red Fortune is a bushy upright plant with spikes of deep reddish pink flowers from midsummer through to the frosts. Best in full sun. Any well drained soil. Relatively compact at 2 feet. 1 litre pot.

    . A really beautiful plant with leaves scented like some long cool drink on a summer terrace and, throughout the summer, tall spikes with tiered whorls of reddish pinky-purple flowers. Also good in that it has a columnar habit and doesn’t spread too much - so you can always find a space for it! – and it can tolerate dry soils. Likes the sun. Any well...

    A splendidly gothic variey of bugle, with glossy rounded leaves that are deepest inky purple, pretty much as close to black as you can get, and, in spring and into summer, short spikes of deep blue flowers that form a nice contrast against the foliage. Vigorous. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 6 in. 1 litre pot.

    Now you can have a hollyhock without the dreaded rust! Or pretty much. This exciting and relatively new cross between Alcea and Althaea has semi-double rose pink flowers arranged along tall stems from the height of summer until the depths of autumn. Great for capturing that cottage garden feel. Full sun. Any soil. 4 ft. 2 litre pot.

    AVAILABLE EARLY 2016. Now Lady’s Mantle is undeniably a lovely plant, with its bluey green scalloped leaves and frothy yellow flowers in summer, but it can get a bit big for its boots. This variety solves this problem, being smaller in all its parts, but just as lovely. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 10 in. 1 litre pot.
