    Each collection contains one of each of the following plants...

  • Astrantia 'Roma' (PBR)Delicate, papery, soft pink flowers which are held on wiry stems above attractive deeply lobed, mid-green leaves. This delightful masterwort is a vigorous variety with a much longer flowering period than most pink or red varieties. It looks particularly fetching planted with grasses and is garden designer, Piet Oudolf's favourite masterwort. Grows to 60cm.

  • Digitalis x mertonensis Towering spikes of large, dusky, carmine-pink tubular flowers appear in May and June above conspicuously veined, dark green leaves.
