|Agapanthus: looking fab, but only flowering for a short time. They like being pot bound so are idea for lazy gardeners!|
Amicia zygomeris: this was a bit of an obsession to find last year. Great and odd looking plant loved by Christopher Lloyd, leaves fold up at night!
Clary: I'm growing this on the veg bit of the garden for cut flowers...pretty plant and a little odd
Perennial digitalis (sorry Im forgetting my Latin today!) lovely and primordial, I think I will collect the seed and grow lots next year
Dahlia 'Roxy' which all of a sudden seems to be everywhere and honeywort which Im growing for the first time. honeywort is great as the flowers are a bit odd and the foliage is a glaucous blue that I like..however I do have a horrible feeling that it will be looking tatty come September..
This is Persicaria virginia? I love the foliage but until now it hasn't done that well. Red dragon is the one everyone grows which is also great but i think the whole family is worth exploring
Salvia involucrata "Bethellii".
Solanum laciniatum: kangaroo apple: thankfully the slugs didn't eat all these: great foliage and odd fruits
Tithonia: first year of growing it and I will grow loads more next year. Great simple flowers, very bright, tall (about 3ft so far) and quite exotic, also very easy from seed
|Finally a Zinnia (note the a-z theme here) pretty and nice colour but I was wanting something a bit more like the Tithonia, big and a bit aggressive...The zinnia is a bit too twee, but perhaps they will grow...|
