Image Japanese Maple (Acer japonicum)
Prev
Failed establishment.
                               Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum)
Have
Present since before owning this property. Slow to drop previous seasons brown leaves, sometimes holding on with new spring leaves. Autumn colour depends on seasonal conditions.
Image Maple (Acer palmatum 'Dissectum Atropurpureum')
Have
Multiple grafted onto tall branched rootstock. This attracts more comments from visitors than any other plant. Stunning in spring! Deep burgundy spring foliage with red flowers. Stays attractive through summer though colour deepens and greens more. Attractive again in Autumn, turning crimson. Only downside is tends to hold onto brown dead leaves throughout winter. I can't help myself but to snip them all off, though it takes ages.
Image Cutleaf Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Filigree')
Have
Needs at least partial summer shade, foliage is delicate. Beautiful contrast between light young spring foliage and red flowers in spring. Variegation is subtle and only visible up close.
Image Cutleaf Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Inaba Shidare')
Have
Quite late to leaf out in spring. Reliable spring and autumn colour.
Image Freeman's Maple (Acer x freemanii Autumn Blaze)
Have
Excellent Autumn colour but not reliable as sometimes drops its leaves way too early.
Tiny blooms in early fall - easy to miss! Autumn Snowflake (Acis autumnalis)
Have
Late summer to early Autumn masses of delicate flowers. Great edging bulb, multiplies quickly. Fine attractive grass-like foliage. Small enough for rock gardens. Tough to heavy soil, shade, sun, drought.
A showy survivor in our garden. Monkshood (Aconitum 'Spark's Variety')
Prev
Failed to establish - rotted. Having a second try with a new healthier looking specimen in an open sunny location with deep root mulching.
Image Climbing Monkshood (Aconitum hemsleyanum)
Have
New. Very poisonous, care is even needed in skin contact with leaves.
Image Kiwi Fruit (Actinidia chinensis var. hispida)
Have
New.
Image Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis)
Have
New.
Garlic (Allium sativum 'S & H Silverskin')
Have
New.
Image Mediterranean Bells (Allium siculum)
Have
Tolerating heavy soil and drought and some shade. Flowers reliably. Slow to increase. Subtle, would suit a wild/natural garden.
The allium accompanies lily, Royal Sunset. Drumsticks (Allium sphaerocephalon)
Have
A better survivor in heavy soil than other some other Alliums. Has multiplied but greatly reduced flowering as shade has increased.
Image Lemon Verbena (Aloysia citrodora)
Have
The fragrance of the leaves is so delicious it has to be near a path or doorway. Best protected from severe frost, deciduous in zone 8a, late to leaf out. Needs pruning to prevent becoming leggy/spindly. Drought and heat and poor soil tolerant. Sprays of tiny whitish flowers on branch tips, would suit natural areas.
Image Peruvian Lily (Alstroemeria Princess Lilies® Camilla)
Have
Very useful colour, will match with most things. Likes dappled light under more open evergreen shrubs. Tolerates drought and root competition. Slowly increases.
Image Parrot Lily (Alstroemeria Princess Lilies® Ivana)
Have
Beautiful watermelon pink Princess lily. Vivid colour, great to brighten up an area, good ground cover near a red Weigela. Shade tolerant, slowly increases.
Image Parrot Lily (Alstroemeria Princess Lilies® Julieta)
Have
Unusual cool toned purple Alstoemeria, missing the yellow blotch that makes most have a warmer tone. Useful ground cover tolerant to light shade and root competition, slowly increasing. Blends with cool pinks, mauves and purples.
