Nandina domestica 'Firepower'

Sacred Bamboo

Evergreen Shrub

Grown for its foliage.
Small white flowers occur some years in summer and in warm areas they may produce orange-red fruits, but neither of these is the major beauty of the plant.

40 (100)

An open branching upright shrub. The leaves are twice divided so that each one has many leaflets. The overall effect is very elegant. In spring he newly opened leaves are reddish, in autumn they turn purplish.

Full Sun to
Full Shade

7.5

The reddish leaves of spring are an excellent background for yellow daffodils growing through a carpet of white-flowered Iberis sempervirens. This trio planted in an urn or tub would give a warm and light effect to a patio on cold spring days.

 

Narcissus 'February Gold'

Daffodil

Hardy Bulb

In early spring the golden yellow flowers open, one per flower stem, held just above the height of the leaves. The trumpet is quite long with a frilled and fluted edge, and the petals bend slightly backwards.

12 (30)

This is a shorter and more robust plant than the common daffodil. The narrow strap-shaped leaves look neat as they tend to stay erect.

Full Sun to
Full Shade

Grow this brilliant harbinger of spring in a tub or trough with the scarlet-fruited Cotoneaster conspicuus as a background and trailing ivy beneath, or in a windowbox underplanted with pansy 'Universal True Blue'.

  • 'Tete-a-Tete', similar to 'February Gold' but several flowers per stem;
  • 'Sweetness', pure yellow, very fragrant, straight shorter cup than the 'February Gold';
  • 'Ice Follies', 16 (40), milk white petals, primrose cup, coarser foliage;
  • 'Soleil d'Or', 14 (35), golden petals, tangerine cup;
  • 'Thalia', 12 (30), three milk white flowers per stem;
  • 'Minnow', 7 (18), four or more flowers, creamy yellow petals;
  • 'Cheerfulness', 14 (35), yellow or white, scented;
  • Narcissus triandrus albus, 4 (10), about three ivory white flowers per stem;
  • Narcissus triandrus albus 'Paper White', 14 (35), 10 white flowers on each stem.

Nicotiana 'Domino Lime'

Flowering Tobacco Plant

Bushy Annual

From the top of the leafy shoots the trumpet-like flowers arise. The narrow tube is about 3 (8) long, sticky and covered with fine hairs and flares out widely to form round to oval lobes. The delicate lime green flowers have a pleasant scent, specially at night, and last all summer and into the autumn.

12 (30)

The large oval pointed leaves are mid green with a soft matt texture.

Full Sun to
0.5 shade - 0.5 sun

10

The scent and colour make this a valuable plant. Combine it in an urn or windowbox with blue verbena and an edging of Lobelia erinus 'Blue Cascade' and the overall colour will be a unique sea green to turquoise.

  • 'Domino White', creamy-white flowers;
  • 'Domino Crimson', crimson red;
  • 'Domino Pink White Eye', soft pink with white eye;
  • 'Domino Mixed', crimson-red, pink, lime and white;
  • 'Nicki Mixed', 18 (45), similar to above but taller;
  • Nicotiana alata 'Lime Green', 24 (60), greenish-yellow flowers;
  • Nicotiana langsdorfii, 40 (100), pendant green bell-like flowers.

Nymphaea pygmaea 'Rubis'

Miniature Waterlily

Deciduous Aquatic with floating leaves

The flowers are wine red, slightly paler on the outer petals, and the centre has numerous orange-yellow stamens. They are about 1.5 (4) across and appear on the water surface in the summer.

 

This has leaves about 1.5 (4) across. They are cleft in one side and sometimes have a purplish tinge.

A half-barrel or an old bath, not more than 18 (45) deep, filled almost to the brim with these delightful circular floating leaves and bowl-like flowers floating on the water surface will give an air of tranquillity to a patio. A few Iris laevigata 'Variegata', with their vertical white-edged leaves and majestic blue flowers, and the hazy pale blue flowers of water forget-me-not planted at the edge, complete the scene and soften the rim of the container.

  • Nymphaea pygmaea 'Alba', like the 'Rubis' but with white flowers;
  • 'Helvola', as above but canary yellow flowers and mottled purplish brown leaves.

Ocimum basilicum 'Purple Ruffles'

Purple Basil

Branching Annual Herb

Small spikes of purple flowers appear in summer; they are pleasant but not a major feature.

12 (30)

Branching stems and shining oval leaves form a dense bush. The foliage is dark purple with a metallic sheen, corrugated and ruffled at the edge.

As well as its useful culinary properies it looks superb in contrast with the long thin green leaves of chives and the bright green mossy leaves of parsley.

  • 'Green Bouquet', green leaves with small flower spikes of lime-green to gold.

Olea Europaa

Olive

Evergreen Shrub

In late summer short sprays of tiny white flowers open; they are insignificant visually but their scent is very fragrant. In warmer climates they are followed by edible green fruits that become purplish as they ripen.

48 (120)

Stiff grey-green stems become grey and gnarled with age. The branches bear dark grey-green glossy leaves about 1 (2.5) long and oval in shape. Since the laves are small the tree casts only light shade as it matures.

Well known for its fruit, for many people the olive brings back memories of holidays in warmer climates. In a tub it brings a delicious scent to the patio and as it matures the branches will look dramatic if festooned with the winter-flowering Clematis cirrhosa balearica and an underplanting of Rosmarinus 'Severn Sea', with its blue flowers and fine green foliage. These three are good company since they all hail from the Mediterranean.

 

Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens'

 

Evergreen Herbaceous Perennial

In summer racemes of small lilac flowers are formed and these are followed by black fruits. However, it is the black leaves that are the main feature

6 (15)

The roots give rise to a tufted clump of curving leathery grass-like leaves. They are glossy and so dark in colour that they appear black rather than dark purple.

This dark glossy tuft is unique. It looks dramatic as a background to pure white snowdrops in winter or as an edging to the broad blue-grey leaves of Hosta sieboldiana elegans in summer. These combinations will give a startling effect in any windowbox or urn.

  • Ophiopogon jaburan, 6 (15), dark green leaves, bell-shaped white flowers in summer give rise to deep blue berries;
  • Ophiopogon jaburan 'Variegatus', as above but with cream stripes to the leaves, also slower growing.

ZONES Chart - Zones designate the lowest range of temperatures in which a plant will normally survive. Thus a plant in Zone 8 will normally survive between -12C and -6C (10F and 20F). Britain and Ireland are within zones 7-9 inclusive.

Deciduous plant - normally loses all its leaves in the winter. It may have different coloured coloured spring or autumn foliage

Evergreen plant - normally retains most of its leaves throughout the year. Evergreens are effective visually all year round and are useful as a permanent screen or shelter

Semi-evergreen plant - normally retains some leaves during a typical winter or dormant season.

 

 

House in winter to protect plant from severe frost damage. Move the plant pot into a greenhouse, or near a window for light in the house, shed or garage.

Since there is some seasonal variation in when a plant blooms from year to year, it cannot be precise but is a useful guide. Seasons are given rather than months since the former apply worldwide.

Plants vary in their requirement of direct sunlight: some have a wide tolerance, others have precise needs. Generally the middle of the range shown will give the best results. The shade section shows the proportion of daylight hours that the plant should be without direct sun:-
