Verdict....your new plants this year

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 19:16

Got 4 varieties ...I think?...of canna.

Want more and intended to get some last year .  Right now until November, maybe beyond, what is better than a canna imposing itself over everything else

Choisya will be nice there.  Evergreen, bay scented glossy  tactile leaves.  Orange/vanilla scented flowers in spring and early summer with an aroma to waft beautifully

phormiums

For me Phormiums are adaptable.  Cream delight is a vsriety I think will do well there. Worth trying.  No, wouldnt put it in compost bag.  Best to use its contents in the soil.  I grow a variety ....or the life of me I can't remember the name but it's not common.....with very sharp dark green and yellow leaves in quite a bit of shade.  The name  will come to me though

Interesting David. Those  dwarf gaillardias are exactly what I have been looking at. Worth a try I think.  Only reservation remaining is that they look too,much like annuals !
