Anemone x hybrida 'Pretty Lady Susan' (Japanese anemone)

Anemone x hybrida ‘Pretty Lady Susan’ (Japanese anemone) £6.99
Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: moist, fertile, humus-rich soil Rate of growth: fast-growing Flowering period: August to October Hardiness: fully hardy Vibrant pink flowers, each with a showy yellow eye, will add a shot of bright colour to the herbaceous border in late summer. Classic cottage garden favourites, Japanese anemones also work well in town gardens, where they help to extend the season of interest well into autumn. Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded, and tidy up old dead leaves in March. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring. Avoid moving the plant since it resents disturbance. Where necessary lift and divide congested clumps in early spring.

Verbena hastata 'Rosea' (verbena)

Verbena hastata ‘Rosea’ (verbena) £5.99
Position: full sun Soil: moist, well-drained soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: June to September Flower colour: mid-pink Hardiness: fully hardy Long-flowering, upright perennials that produce slender, branching spires, which are crowded with buds that open slowly from the base, to small, clear pink flowers throughout summer. Their interesting form makes them ideal for creating ertical interest towards the back of the border. Garden care: Protect plants in winter with a dry winter mulch around the crown.
