Nice thought . Nice thread vicko  

Schizostylis flowers in October...whites, pinks, reds.  I too like to remember someone in late October but I always have lots still in flower here.  

crocus flower for very short time so cannot rely on them but daffodils will flower for a,very long time from winter to late spring according to variety.  Hyacinths too, snowdrops, 

i am sure others will post their ideas too

Easy peasy Bloodrose from seed.

sow in late winter/early spring.,,you will get lots of plants with a wide colour and pattern range.  

Must be grown in full sun.....In pots in hot well drained spots in the garden

Hmm!  Took pics of echinaceas and only one published.

this is Summer Sky.  Proving to be pretty hardy after 4 or maybe 5 years

gazanias Bloodrose......another

They are hardy here and usually flower in the winter too.  When sun is out so are gazanias and they shine; cloudy or sun sets = closed flowers

PP be very careful on opening that parcel of grasses.  They usually harbour a little pest called the itch causes severe rashes and fit like reactions. 

Best to forwad package to me and I will vet it for you.  Always best to be safe than sorry
