Summer colour plant offers
The summer season is when many of us spend the most time in our gardens, enjoying al fresco dining on long, warm summer nights. Tropical planting comes into its own, fragrant roses burst into bloom, and there's no shortage of vibrant perennials that flower all summer long to choose from.
Bursting with vitality, the Kaleidoscopic Cosmos Collection offers wonderfully fluffy and fern-like foliage from March through to October. Daisy-like flowers are then held on strong, slender stems from July through to October, with warming hues which are ideal for a sunny border. The collection includes Cosmos ‘Rubenza’, Cosmos ‘Xanthos’, Cosmos ‘Tango’, Cosmos ‘Sweet Sixteen’, and Cosmos ‘Sensation Purity’.
Winner of the prestigious ’Rose of the Year’ award for 2003, this old-fashioned rose is a real must-have for any garden, performing admirably in pots, beds, or borders. Blooms grow in clusters against a bed of rich green foliage with a wonderful perfume that sits on the summer breeze.
A half-hardy annual sunflower, SunBelievable™ Brown Eyed Girl is perfect for beds and containers and will produce up to 1,000 flowers over a season. A new hybrid, the plant is sterile so puts all its energy into flowering rather than setting seed. It’s super easy to grow and will bounce right back if you forget to water it.
The vibrant colours of these candelabra primulas are ideal for shady, damp areas of the garden. Bearing lollipop-shaped flower stems from April to July, they make a striking combination alongside spring-flowering bulbs such as tulips and late daffodils. Collection includes: Primula japonica ‘Apple Blossom’, P. japonica ‘Miller’s Crimson’, P. bulleyana, P. capitata mooreana, and P. japonica ‘Alba’.
