1.2m-1.4m A lovely, easy plant which hasn't needed support at all for me. It produces a clump of attractive, divided foliage, and stems bear fluffy white catkin-like flowers in summer, which still look attractive as they produce seed heads. Prefers sun to part shade, with a well-drained but not too dry, fertile soil.
15-25cm. A well-behaved plant, producing masses of mid-pink flowers from late spring and through the summer. Well-drained soil in full or part sun. A really valuable plant for the rock garden or front of border.
15cm. Neat rosettes produce dainty sprays of pale pink flowers with deeper pink centres, giving a pretty, hazy pink effect. Good for the front of a border, or in pots and troughs. For full or part sun, but not too dry. Tolerates light shade too.
10-15cms. Fleshy rounded foliage forms an evergreen mat, with delightful sprays of starry pink-red flowers mid-late summer. Will trail over a wall or a pot too. Requires well-drained soil in a sunny spot. So far it has survived well with me, even being covered in snow for several days last year (2018).
10cm. Shining, golden crocus-like flowers from September to November, with dark glossy leaves appearing soon after flowers, and lasting until late spring. These bulbs need a deep, well-drained soil in a sunny position.
15cm. Shrubby plant, making a small mound of silver-grey foliage. In summer, produces scented, pink-purple flowers in rounded clusters, over several weeks, often re-blooming later. Requires well-drained soil in a sunny position. Good in a trough, raised bed etc.
5-7cm. Forms a mat of small, softly-hairy, green leaves, with heads of purple-hooded and creamy-white-lipped flowers over a long period in summer. Well-drained soil in a trough or raised bed. Attracts bees, etc.
20-25cm. White, slightly fragrant (not the onion smell!) flowers produced over a long period. May be hardy in warm well-drained position. I have always over-wintered it in a cool greenhouse, where it flowers for much of the year. Well-drained soil in full sun.
