My 10...in no particular order. Most are grown for fragrance or because they attract pollinators...especially bees.
4. thymes..or hyssop...or agastache...or oregano...or all 4
5. tithonia rotundifolia
all subject to change depending on my mood....but I can't imagine a garden of mine without these plants, I would have put echium pininana in there but I've only ever managed to get one to the flowering stage once....
So many plants I could add but since geum has just been mentimention have to mention geum Totally Tamgerine. Been flowering 3' high for weeks now. ,lovely colour
My top ten...soooo hard to choose
Tropaeolum speciosum....I'm on chalk
Lillies. Any that smell nice
Clematis...smelly ones only
Any tall Veronica
And thats it?! Thats all I can have?! But I've only just started
addict, do you have a Paulownia tomentosa? I did have and cut it back to keep huge leaves as seller told me. At that time I didn't know it flowered so beautifully, and it sadly didn't regrow and died.
Poor you Kef. No never grown one but used to drive past a massive one everyday. Thats why its on my dream list as is having a garden big enough to grow one.
