For centuries garden enthusiasts and horticulturists have been developing new varieties of garden plants through hybridization and cross pollination. Every season growers release new varieties on their menu. These plants are grown for their unique qualities – prolonged flowering periods, pest resistance, hardiness, flower colour and many more.
Lets have a look at what the spring season plant catwalk has to offer:
The trees are a little more than the standard fruit trees on the market, but what sets these trees apart is that they are grafted onto dwarf and semi dwarf rootstocks. These trees are produced for the agricultural sector and the dwarfing rootstocks produce smaller, precociously fast yielding, high producing trees.
Agapanthus ‘Wavy Navy’ is an indigenous, evergreen, clump-forming perennial that grows in sun or light shade. It grows in most soils but will do better in well drained, compost enriched soil. It is water wise and drought tolerant. It grows to a height of 60cm. In summer to autumn it flowers with large heads of navy-blue flowers. It is free flowering and makes excellent cut flowers.
It is an evergreen perennial shrub that has aromatic, variegated green and white foliage. It grows in sun to shade. It grows 40-50cm high and spreads 40-50cm. It is water wise and drought tolerant. It has fragrant blue-lilac flowers in spring to autumn. Birds and bees are attracted to the flowers. Cut it back to keep it in shape.
Rosmarinus prostratus ‘Tony’ has dark green needle-like leaves that have a rich pine-like fragrance. It is a flat growing, perennial herb that has pale blue flowers in summer and a cascading growth habit. This makes it ideal for hanging baskets, containers or embankments.
These are just a few of the new faces that you can see in our nurseries. Start filling your garden in a new fashion to create exciting and interesting outdoor spaces.
