One of the most exciting plants to recently come out of the Mexican mountains is this cool and wet hardy Agave.

Quantity: 

A robust and vigorous selection with stronger stems and uniform habit, for a more upright habit of this Lady's Mantle species. Alchemilla Mollis produces large pale green foliage clumps topped by sprays of tiny yellow flowers. Popular with flower arrangers because of the beautiful texture in the foliage.

Aprx 25 seeds 3.95  JS2963

(Click here for Larger Image)

Quantity:

10 seeds 1.95   JS3264 

(Click here for Larger Image)

A fully hardy small to medium sized shrub from North America with pretty snowy white flowers in spring and bearing tasty edible blackcurrant sized fruits in mid summer. The plants tolerate a wide pH range and will also grow well in heavy clay soils. Water needs are minimal. Although fruit production is best when grown in full sun, partial shade is also tolerated. The berries are sweet and juicy, can be eaten fresh, canned, frozen, made into jams, pies or wines, and can be dried and eaten like raisins. Some say the taste is far superior to Blueberries without the problem of needing and acid soil to grow them.

Quantity: 

This unique variety flowers the first year from seed because the cold stratification requirement is only 14-21 days with temperatures as high as 10C. An October/November sowing produces April/May flowering plants. Its hybrid vigour translates to a free flowering 12" to 18" habit with exceptional uniformity across all 6 colours that are clean and bright.

10 seeds 2.95   JS2078

(Click here for Larger Image)

Quantity: 

This species grows native from Nepal & Northeast India to south central China. It has exotic looking dark purple to chocolate spathes striped or marked white. The mottled or purple-blotched leaf stem bears a huge tropical-looking shiny palmate leaf, divided to look a bit like three leaves with reddish brown margins. It is called a Double-Whip Cobra Lily because it has two tongues. The first is at the pointed tip of the hood or spathe, the "tongue" common to Arisaemas generally. But much stranger is an unexpected tongue that extends from the head of the spadix or jack. To 2ft.

Arisaema tortuosum
Whipcord Cobra Lily n]]
10 seeds 2.95   JS2057

(Click here for Larger Image)

Quantity: 

Described as tortuous because of the extremely long, curling green, sometimes purple, spadix which curves out of the mouth of the spathe tube and bends backwards tapering to a fine tip.

Hardy and reliable this is robust plant once established, with large divided 2 to 3 leaves and flowering in summer. Height to 1 or 1.5 metres

Arisaema triphyllum
Jack in the Pulpit n]]]
10 seeds 2.95   JS2058

(Click here for Larger Image)

Quantity: 

Jack-in-the-pulpit is a spring woodland wildflower usually growing 1ft to 2ft tall. Flower structure consists of the spadix (Jack) which is an erect spike containing numerous, tiny, green to purple flowers and the sheath-like spathe (pulpit) which encases the lower part of the spadix and then opens to form a hood extending over the top of the spadix. The outside of the spathe is usually green or purple and the inside is usually striped purple and greenish white, though considerable colour variations exist. Two large green, compound, long-petioled leaves (1ft to 1.5ft long), divided into three leaflets each, emanate upward from a single stalk and provide umbrella-like shade to the flower. The fleshy stalk and leaves lend an almost tropical aura to the plant.

Silver spear is a hardy, clump-forming perennial with elegant silvery spear-shaped leaves. In very cold winters in exposed areas plants may suffer frost damage and may benefit from protection. During mid- to late spring long stalks of yellowish-green flowers emerge from female plants that give rise to orange berries in summer. This plant can make a dramatic feature in the garden especially when planted close to purple-foliage plants such as Aeonium 'Schwarzkopf'. It makes an unusual alternative to phormium or New Zealand flax.

Quantity: 

This is a superb and beautiful species forming a large basal cluster of leaves from which arise numerous pyramidal, leafy spikes of countless pale blue or white, saucer-shaped flowers, each 1 in. or more across, the whole making one enormous mass of bloom. Out of doors it will grow to a splendid 4 ft., but in your cool greenhouse, generously nurtured in a 10 in. pot, it will often reach a breathtaking 9 ft. or more!

Cordyline australis
Cabbage Tree n]]
20 seeds 1.78    JS10

(Click here for Larger Image) 

Quantity: 

The Cordyline is a well known plant that needs little introduction, tolerating about minus 8C without protection. If planted in more severe conditions it would require some protection, otherwise the growing point would be killed by the frost. However, even cut down to the ground you could expect new suckering growth the following year to compensate for any top growth loss. Many people leave the old leaves on the trunk to provide additional protection, or tie up the crown leaves during the worst weather conditions. This plant is readily available from most garden centres, but it is easy from seed, making it an excellent choice for any summer

Cordyline australis purpurea
Cabbage Tree n]
20 seeds 2.66    JS11

(Click here for Larger Image) 

Quantity: 

This Cordyline produces an alternative, attractive purple/red foliage. Culture the same as above. Please bear in mind that the non green varieties are not quite so hardy if you are thinking of a permanent position out of doors.

(Click here for Larger Image) 

Quantity: 

A magnificent species, growing to 8m, with a truly exotic bold look, this is slightly more tender than australis and not so often seen in cultivation in the UK, frost tender to -5C. It differs from C. australis by having much broader leaves often with a red central midrib.

Cyclamen neapolitanum
Hardy Cyclamen n]]]
20 seeds 2.45    JS3044

(Click here for Larger Image) 

Quantity: 

A hardy outdoor type of cyclamen with beautiful silver-marbled deep green foliage. Flowers August to November with soft rose flowers with a carmine base. Foliage dies off in the Summer. We have had these in our garden for many years and they always produce a great show and spread via self sown seeds over time.

Cynara
Cardoon n]]]
20 seeds 2.42   JS12

(Click here for Larger Image)

(Click here for another Large Image)

Quantity: 

An architectural clump forming plant which if given space really comes into its own. The plant shown in the picture is about 3 years old, already 10' across. Flowers are carried on strong stems up to 10' high and new foliage, beginning early autumn, is a very attractive soft blue grey. The flower form relates closely to the shape of a classic artichoke flower, slightly smaller and more delicate than the edible varieties, topped by a brush of bright blue flowers, quite stunning. After the flowers fade I cut down the old stems and new growth soon forms from the base. These remain over winter growing slowly and looking very attractive, with only the occasional light frost damage before the spring heralds rapid new growth. Easy to raise from seed but you will need space to accommodate it permanently. Young plants from off shoots or seedlings make excellent bedding before becoming too large.

Cytisus battandieri
Pineapple Broom n]]
10 seeds 3.18   JS1167

(Click here for Larger Image) 

Quantity: 

A native shrub from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. The dense clusters of pineapple scented yellow flowers appear in mid summer and together with the silvery grey green foliage present a wonderful sight.

Cytisus scoparius Broom
Scotch Broom mixed colours n]]
10 seeds 2.95   JS2723

(Click here for Larger Image) 

Quantity: 

The ornamental broom plant, or Cytisus, is a lovely short lived shrub with evergreen, long whip-like branches covered in small leaves. The pea-like flowers bloom from late spring through mid-summer in shades of red, yellow, white, pink and some bi-colours from our hybrid seed mix. Resistant to pests and tolerant of dry weather changes, the broom plant is ideal for a low-maintenance garden. I used to grow these all the time but it seems to have gone out of fashion for some reason which is a shame, perhaps because it is seen as a weed in some countries. However it never gave me any problems and it can be kept pruned to size for a few years before becoming leggy.

 

Dasylirion wheeleri
Desert Spoon n]]
10 seeds 2.42   JS1230

(Click here for Larger Image) 

Quantity: 

Dasylirion is a desert plant for dry positions. This tough plant is a native from Arizona growing slowly to form a dense rosette of silver-blue foliage 4-5 feet tall and wide.

Quantity: 

Hand pollinated seed from the finest collection of modern coloured hybrids. Apart from providing a wonderful display of flowers mid summer on very hardy perennial plants you can also eat the flowers. Hemerocallis flowers add a really unusual exotic touch to any salad and the slightly crunchy, peppery sweet flavour is quite unique. I love eating them straight off the plants when my wife is not looking (I am told it ruins the garden flower display!)

Quantity: 

An excellent and rarely seen clumping succulent with arching leaves and tall spikes to 5ft of red to pink sprays covered in inverted bell shape flowers. Not a true Yucca but very similar in habit, very popular in Arizona and a native plant of Texas withstanding dry conditions and cold tolerant to about -15c. Excellent for edging dry areas blooming from early spring to late summer and attractive to butterflies (humming birds too but we don't get many of those here!)

Quantity: 

Now here is an interesting one for you to try out in a tropical border. Hibiscus coccineus is a large red flowered Hibiscus able to take between -5C to -10C but not making so large a plant after recovery. It comes from the swamps of Florida and Louisiana, but I usually over winter them in a frost free polytunnel and then use the plants for tropical bedding rewarding me with huge red flowers on 6ft plants worthy of any tropical bedding. Pretty delicate light green hemp type foliage. It naturally dies back to the ground during winter then regrowing up to 10ft in its natural habitat.
