Also I think Heuchera? In the very shaded end of my garden, Corydalis (yellow) flowers all summer, there is a blue version, but it seems to be far less vigorous. Foxgloves. Vinca as ground cover.

Sue, I don't know your location, but if you live somewhere south and sheltered you may be able to grow a mimosa tree which has similar flowers, or there may be a variety of sailors Buttons that has similar flowers.

Artemisia  and lavender could be the grey, with padding in the vase to increase height. Be careful with the white delphiniums, I have one that looks slightly grubby; cream may be better. Also have tree lilies, very spectacular. Cosmos grows very tall too.

Sorry to be so ignorant, but what is a WUM?

Mike, looking forward to the chemistry lesson as I have apparently a PH of 8, (in the garden, not me personally)  but most things grow here barring camelias, which I love and beastly rhodedendrons.

Keep up the good work

Thanks to all for the comments.
