What's the star in your garden right now

Lizzie - laurentia is an annual for me - but flowers like mad til the first frosts.  It used to be quite hard to find, but now the GCs over here have it quite frequently when the rest of their annuals come in.  Its also called isotoma - just googled it, and T&M sell seeds, although i have never grown it from scratch myself

Stacey - if you go down the lavender route, check out the floral marquee at HC - there is a stunning display of all sorts of colours - you could mix a few of them for a different look
