I'm laying in the bath plotting what I want to do with my back borders next year. I have a small garden so always favoured compact flowers but this year I bought a lynchs or some such, red scabious, my own gayser gaura cuttings, astrantia major, verbena and tall lobellia abs shoved them in and they look great.
so our challenge, what flower has flowered throughout whole season or added interest and would be valuable to anyone's garden. Pls include rough size guide.
i would recommend gayser gaura mine is white, about 80cm tall and 60 wide. Small flowers but has gone right thru all season and still looks stunning. Very easy to take cuttings from and replace next year as this appears to be a tender perennial.
please share your most valuable reliable long interest plant
