Salino I think Christopher Lloyd would have approved of the new varieties of agastache.  Some are very showy.  He liked value plants too so varieties like sangria, summer sky, tangerine dreams, raspberry summer would have given that . They flower for ages too, impose themselves...esp the taller ones......and evoke comment.  Plus....yes, another feature.....their varied foliage scent including liquorice and citrus.   Oh! and they attract bees and butterflies. Bet  I've tempted a few of you now

Mark, winter or summer flowering heathers?

winter flowering types will be trimmed here in April or May.  Sumner flowering varieties in late summer Mark.

Plenty in flower still but no roses.  Out of flower they are ugly things.  They attract disease and pest.  Plus Cornwall, near the coast, is not ideal for roses.  I'm in good company in disliking roses....the great Christopher Lloyd did too
