November – Cornus sanguineum ‘Midwinter Fire’

November – Cornus sanguineum ‘Midwinter Fire’
Through the summer months this variety of our native dogwood probably wouldn’t attract much attention. But when the leaves fall, the coloured stems create a vivid tracery in shades of red and orange in the winter sun. The early evening light will offer the best effects and against a backdrop of snow the ‘fire’ burns even brighter. This shrub will easily reach 2 metres but hard pruning in s

October – Ceratostigma plumbagiodes
Although this is an unassuming mound of green foliage through spring and early summer, it is through late summer and autumn that this low growing perennial shines. Sparkling gentian blue flowers appear on mass from late summer persisting through to autumn when the foliage takes on rich red tones.

The yellow stamens stand out against the pure white petals and look magnificent both close up and from a distance. It is sure to brighten any semi-shaded border in the late summer. Don’t worry if your Anemone doesn’t perform too well in the first season or two as they can be a little fussy about movin

As a campanulatus variety, this Agapanthus will lose its leaves over the winter however this makes it a hardier choice to keep outside in
