Salvia nemorosa 'Sensation Rose'
Throughout summer, spikes carry masses of rose pink flowers, each sitting within a deeper purplish-pink calyx. Their compact, tidy habit makes them ideal for containers and window boxes, as well as creating colourful drifts towards the front of a sunny border.
To prolong flowering remove the flower spikes as soon they start to fade. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.
'Juuli' _ 'Juuli' is a woody-based, semi-climbing, deciduous perennial with dark green leaves and, from midsummer into early autumn, lavender-blue flowers with prominent, pale yellow anthers. Flowers fade to pale blue with darker central bar down the centre of each petal.
Majestic, deep ruby-red summer flowers appearing almost black on opening, with golden-yellow centres and mid-green leaves. This compact, large-flowered clematis is perfect for growing in a container in partial shade.
Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
Elegant spikes of small, tubular, foxglove-like flowers appear from July to October among lance-shaped, bright green leaves. This pretty, easy-to-grow perennial is named after plantsman Laurence Johnston's famous Arts and Crafts garden in Gloucestershire. It will quickly form large, leafy clumps and is perfect for adding a splash of colour to the middle of a sunny, well-drained border. If you deadhead regularly, the flowers will persist until the first frosts.
Remove the faded blooms regularly to prolong flowering. Apply a dry mulch around the base of the plant to protect the roots from frost damage and cut back in spring when new shoots appear low down on the stem. Lift and divide
Delphinium grandiflorum 'Summer Nights'
Very different from the traditional tall spiky Delphiniums, this strain forms a low, bushy mound of lacy green leaves. Plants bear loose sprays of single, spurred sky-blue to deep midnight-blue flowers throughout the summer. Ideal for containers, the rock garden and for edging the sunny border. Remove faded flower heads regularly to encourage repeat blooming.
Dianthus flowers (Dianthus spp.) are also called "pinks." They belong to a family of plants which includes carnations and are characterized by the spicy fragrance the blooms emit. Dianthus plants may be found as a hardy annual, biennial or perennial and most often used in borders or potted displays.
Isotoma axillaris 'Blue Star'
A terrific plant with multibranched stems, producing a great mound of lilac-coloured, star-like flowers. It's best shown off in a tall, narrow, chimney-pot type container, filled, lifting the mass of growth off the ground where it balloons out. This can be used to fill border gaps in summer, adding height, or be planted at strategic points on a terrace. Pinch out the young growth to make it even bushier, and give a liquid feed over summer. Keep deadheading to generate even more flowers.
