Hydrangea paniculata Little Lime ('Jane') (PBR) - It may be half the size of its sibling 'Limelight', but this fab new hydrangea still packs pretty good punch. It has strong stems that support the weight of the conical, lime green flowers, which fade to cream and then pink as the season progresses. Grate where space is limited, but you want a hard-working and colourful plant, it can also be grown in large pots if kept well watered.
Astrantia major 'Star of Billion' promises to twinkle in the garden! Its white and green flowers, surrounded by bracts that look like an Elizabethan collar, are set above lovely, lacy foliage. The long-lasting flowers actually look like they hold countless pins in a pin cushion. Astrantia prefers shade or partial shade and will grow in most garden soils. Adored by florists, Astrantia makes an outstanding cut flower with a vase life of at least 10-14 days.
Love-in-a-mist Nigella damascena 'Albion Green Pod' - pure white flowers with a prominent boss of stamens are framed by a collar of wispy foliage, creating a beautiful, ethereal effect. As the flowers fade, fantastic green seedpods develop, and both these and the flowers make wonderful additions to fresh or dried arrangements
