A really outstanding, compact ornamental grass. If you love the look of Miscanthus, and who doesn't?, then this is a perfect choice for a small space, front of border, courtyard garden or large pot. RHS Harlow Carr has a couple of plants in their winter walk and they are interesting every month of the year, from fresh green leaves in Spring to pinkish flowers which develop into wonderful feathery seed heads which provide movement, to good colour in Autumn. A superb plant.

I've had this variety in a large container now for over 8 years. It's with some other plants, so I really will have to re-do the pot at some point, but it has thrived and blooms very well every year. Not too large, reaching about 3 - 4 feet. A gorgeous colour with apricot buds fading to a pale peach with age. Highly recommended.

This is a superb perennial. I grew it in my Yorkshire garden many years ago and absolutely loved it. It really is stunning and highly recommended. The bracts are a wonderful chartreuse yellow colour. The stems grow one year and in the second year produce the large showy bracts. I wish I had room to grow it again.

One of the most perfectly fragrant roses!
