If you put a date in your diary for a visit to Marchants, do empty the boot of your car. I hadn't planned to buy any plants but left with a garden full.

Plant Inventory: Herbaceous Perennials

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
BAPTISIA australis. A long lived legume whose stems are clad with handsome pale green foliage, terminating in summer with Lupin-like spikes of indigo blue flowers. Needing a little patience, it is too infrequently seen. 120cm.
B. australis ‘Nelson’s Navy’. Great excitement here last year with this plants first flowering. What a colour! – deep navy bue. We are beavering to have young seed raised plants for sale this summer.
B. a. ‘Purple Smoke’. A striking and highly spoken of introduction from the States. As above but with distinct dusky purple flowers. Needs bags of summer sunshine to flower well. 80cm.

BERGENIA ‘Overture’. A classy B. purpurascens hybrid with sculpted evergreen foliage, red flushed on the reverse and a brilliant, eye shattering spring display of pendulous purple-magenta flowers on stocky 30cm. stems.
B. stracheyi alba. Possesses neat, small oval leaves and in Spring produces chubby 15cm spikes of white flowers, fading to palest pink. Charming, not a word much used to describe this genus.

BUPLEURUM falcatum. The small flowers of this short lived perennial are acid yellow, held in airy clouds on a tracery of wiry stems. Unsurpassed for effect, it will seed freely. 60cm.
