Lily Of The Valley

Convallaria majalis 'Albostriata' *

Highly prized by gardeners this coveted selection has dark green leaves that are vertically striped with pale gold. Slow to establish but well worth the wait. In early spring short scapes appear among the leaves and are clothed in tiny, fragrant white "bells". Makes a great cut flower with a scent that will take you back to your grandma's garden. Any solid green leaves that appear should be removed at the base as they are more vigorous and will eventually take over the clump. Plants tolerate most soil types (except wet) and like to have good drainage; shade to partial shade. Height: 15-20cm Spread: 30cm+ Zone: 3

Fairy Bells

Golden Emperor Fairy Bells

Disporum smilacinum 'Golden Emperor' *

What a dainty little treasure from Japan. The rounded leaves are dark green elegantly "painted" along the edges and tips in pure gold. Tiny white star-like flowers appear at the tips of stems in early spring. A robust and easy to grow Disporum that may take a few years to settle in. Makes a beautiful and unique container plant and is also a stunning foreground groundcover. Like humus rich, moist but well-draining soil in partial shade. Height: 10-15cm Spread: 30cm+ Zone: 4

Little Henry Sweet Coneflower

Little Henry Sweet Coneflower

Rudbeckia subtomentosum 'Little Henry' **

A more compact and upright growing form with attractive deep green foliage. Plants are topped by distinctive quill-type yellow flowers with a brown eye; late summer into early fall. Makes a great cut flower and is attractive to butterflies. Tolerant of most soil types and best when grown in full sun. Height: 90cm Spread: 60cm Zone: 4

Kowhai

Kowhai

Sophora prostrata 'Little Baby'

Very unique, dwarf growing broadleaf evergreen shrub with wiry, interlacing zigzagging stems and tiny grey-green leaves. A curious, slow growing gem often used in bonsai or as a container specimen. Small yellow-orange, beak-like flowers appear sporadically in May. Grow in full sun to light shade in well draining soil and select a location that shelters the plant from winter winds and exposure. Height: 1-2m Spread: 60-90cm Zone: 7

Japanese Hakon Grass / Japanese Forest Grass

Hakonechloa macra

Elegant and sophisticated these versatile shade grasses make a wonderful accent with their cascading, mounding habit and swaying movement in the wind.  They are the best grasses for shade, make superb container plants and are perfectly suited for planting near the water's edge or on a gentle slope.  Airy flower panicles in summer add that little extra touch of interest.  Best in partial shade with ample drainage.

Albo Striata Japanese Forest Grass

Hakonechloa macra 'Albostriata' *

This grass has wide green blades finely striped with creamy white. Height: 60cm Spread: 60-90cm Zone: 5
