  • Unusual rather than attractive is how Dr Hessayon described Pachypodium Lamerei, which is perhaps being a little unfair to the succulent commonly called the Madagascar Palm on account of the palm like spray of long leaves that sprouts from the top of a woody - and spiny! - stem or trunk. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we suppose, and we like it,...

  • Now here's a succulent with attitude! A gasteria with a great name, Dragon Skin has elongated thick fleshy leaves of dark green, the rough surface of which is marked with lines, streaks and spots of dusty lighter colouration. Stroke the leaves  and you will quickly understand why the name so fits the plant. Easy to look after on a sunny windowsill. Well...

Easy to fall in love with. Best with some degree of shade during the day....

  • A terrific garden plant, Veronica First Glory is neat in habit, so it doesn’t get too tall and floppy. The flower spikes are blue, a deep and very royal shade of blue, and it just keeps on blooming like it doesn’t want to stop. And it doesn’t - at least, not until autumn, especially if you do a bit of chopping back of spent flowering stems. Butterflies...

  • Now with a name like White Beauty, you would expect two things of this particular member of the aloe family, and you won't be disappointed on either count. The rosettes of leathery pointed, but non spiky, leaves are heavily suffused with white blotches, leaving little green visible, and yes, it is a thing of beauty indeed, especially when the tubular...

  • Sheer elegance personified (or maybe that should be plantified), Veronicastrum Fascination will charm you with its elegant willowy stature and branched spires of lilac blue flowers over a long period in mid and late summer. Enough to keep you fascinated, we should think. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 36 in. plus. 2 litre pot.

  • The white-flowered version of Thalictrum Delavayi is an absolutely lovely plant, tall of stature and with airy foliage like that of a maidenhair fern. In early to mid-summer it provides a striking display with clusters of tiny pearl-like buds that open to purest white flowers with striking yellow anthers. Sun or semi-shade. Rich moist soil is best. 4 feet...

  • Nachtvlinder means night moth, which seems a totally appropriate name for this beautiful salvia with its large lipped flowers in a definitely nocturnal shade of plummy maroon purple from May onwards.  Nice neat shrubby habit, and aromatic foliage to boot. Sun or semi-shade. Hardy in a well drained soil. 30 in. 2 litre pot.

  • The name Abutilon Megapotanicum somehow sounds like some survivor from the Jurassic era, but what we have here is a tall and airy evergreen shrub with long lobed leaves among which dangle countless bell shaped flowers with yellow petals and red calyces, whose protruding purple stamens give them a rather cheeky look. Looks good trained against a wall and...

    READY EARLY 2018. Yup. It’s the monkey puzzle tree. Native to South America, it will eventually form a large stately evergreen tree, enough to baffle any monkey that happens by your garden. But it will take its time about it and can actually be a fine specimen for a big pot on the patio. Tightly packed whorls of triangular and rather spiky leaves clothe...

  • A peculiar plant, in the best sense of the word. Sisyrinchium Biscutella reminds us of a spider, somehow, perhaps because the buff flowers, which are streaked with purple, are held in clusters on long stems. You'll see what we mean. The flower stems arise from evergreen clumps of rather grass-like elongated mid-green leaves and provide quite a show over a...

  • Hot afternoons on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean is what this lovely evergreen shrub evokes. The arching stems of Nerium Oleander are clothed in leathery pointed leaves and bear at their tips clusters of tubular trumpet-like flowers of crimson red. Surprisingly hardy but probably best in a big pot that can be brought in over winter. Great patio...

  • Now rare in its native Chile and equally rare in cultivation in the UK, this shrubby lobelia has narrower greyish green leaves than its relative Lobelia Tupa and sports tubular flowers that are rosy pink in hue. Lobelia Bridgesii is a  choice plant for those who like something a little out of the ordinary and have the space to let it show off its charms....

  • Lavandula Tiara represents an exciting new take on French lavender, with the usual greyish green aromatic foliage (evergreen, of course) but not at all usual dark purplish blue flowerheads topped off by creamy white bracts. Now that’s a highly distinctive combination, and no mistake. Sunny spot. Well drained soil. To 24 in. 2 litre pot.

  • A sport of the popular Pink Delight, this beauty, like its cousin, produces a succession of long lasting fully double flowers on a well branched plant. In this case the colour scheme is clear white with a touch of lime green at the centres. A lovely thing indeed. Sun or semi-shade. Well drained soil. 18 to 24 in. 2 litre pot.

  • Virginia sweetspire is the common name for Itea Virginica, a lovely arching shrub which produces dangling trusses of sweetly scented white flowers in early summer. The garnet bit refers to the stunning flush of colour the leaves take on in the autumn, and for quite some time. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. To 4 ft. 2 litre pot.

  • An aloe used to the dry heat of South Africa, the handsome Cosmo will ask little of you other than an occasional drop to drink. Forms an elegant rosette of white-dotted succulent leaves and sports a spike of orangey red flowers, often in the winter months. Fairly hardy but best to keep indoors, at least in winter. Sunny or well lit position. Well drained...

  • Hailing from Mexico, Beaucarnea Recurvata or the pony tail palm, with its distinctive swollen base is actually fairly hardy but is best grown as an indoor or patio plant in the summer. The sprays of arching ribbon like leaves, up to 3 feet long, do indeed remind one of the said pony's tail. In its habitat a small tree, but in a pot it will stay of...

  • Now the name Hinton Seedling might lead you to expect something on the small side, but in fact this abutilon will form a medium sized spreading evergreen shrub, ideal for training against a wall or fence, that carries a succession of deep orangey red bell-shaped flowers. Given the right conditions, it will do that for most of the year. Foliage-wise, it's...

  • This charming little shrublet has a much longer name that we won’t bore you with here. Suffice it to say Hypericum Citrinum has semi-evergreen blue green foliage, against which the large lemony yellow flowers look rather fetching through the summer. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 15 in. 1 litre pot.

  • As welcoming a sight in the garden as its name suggests, Aloha is a relatively compact echinacea with petals the colour of fresh melon surrounding orange central cones which looks simply stunning from June to September, given a bit of deadheading. Particularly good when planted in a group. Sun or semi-shade. Well drained soil. 24 in. 2 litre pot.

  • Think Jack Frost, then think bigger, much bigger. Brunnera Alexander's Great has the same silvery veined leaves but the individual leaves and the plant itself are on a different scale, hence the name. Winner of lots of prizes and admirers. Blue flowers in spring as per usual. Prefers some shade. Likes a reasonably moist soil. 15 in. 2 litre pot.

  • A compact (well, you guessed that) variety of Berberis discovered by Charles Darwin (you guessed that too) with bronzy young foliage maturing to rich green and clusters of vivid orange flowers in mid to late spring. And it's evergreen, which makes it even nicer. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. To 36 in. 2 litre pot.
