Anthemis E C Buxton

Anthemis 'E. C. Buxton'

This easy to grow flower has yellow daisy flowers from late spring until autumn. It grows 2-3 ft high and wide. Anthemis can be grown in flower beds or borders, on banks or slopes or in containers.

They form lovely mounds covered in yellow flowers over a long period. The finely cut foliage is evergreen.

Day Lily

Hemerocallis - Daylilies

Daylilies are one of the easiest flowering plants to grow. They come in many flower colors and sizes. Hemerocallis are available in red, orange, pink, purple, white or yellow. Some Hemerocallis have double flowers and mixed colors - very pretty!

They are excellent seaside perennials. Enjoy the beautiful flowers during the summer. This low maintenance flower grows up to 50-90 cm high depending on variety. The foliage is deciduous.


Kniphofias - Red Hot Pokers

Kniphofias are clump-forming, evergreen perennial garden flowers with a striking appearance. The tall flower spikes can have various colors from orange-red to yellow. There are also red or yellow varieties available. The yellow ones are my personal favorite!

The size of Kniphofias can vary dramatically depending on the variety. Some are compact and others grow into huge plants so do your homework when choosing a Red Hot Poker for your flower beds! The large varieties are great for banks, slopes or as a dramatic focal point but are not suitable for small flower beds.
Kniphofias are excellent plants for windy gardens.


Dierama pulcherrimum - Angel's Fishing Rod

This unusual plant has grass-like, evergreen foliage. The pink bell flowers appear on long weeping stems up to 1.5 m high.

Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm' - Black-eyed Suzan

This clump-forming perennial grows up to 1 m high. The foliage is deciduous. The colorful black-centered yellow daisy flowers appear in late summer and well into the autumn.

This is a great plant for flower beds and mixed borders.

Kaffir Lily

Kaffir Lilies - Schitzostylis coccinea

Kaffir Lilies are superb late flowering perennials that will brighten up your garden in late autumn when little else is in bloom. They are available in bright red or pink colors. The grass-like foliage is evergreen. Height 60-100 cm.

This is also a great plant for seaside gardens. Include them in beds and borders or in containers.

These easy perennials have pure white trumpet-shaped flowers in spring and summer. They tolerate moist and wet soils and are suitable for the margins of ponds. The arrow-shaped leaves are dark green.
