I was attracted to all the beautiful details on the the flower petals! I have been paying really close attention to the detail on a lot of Hummingbird's feathers. If you look really closely at the feathers you will discover that they have small lines across and it appears as a repeated pattern.
1 Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna’ from the mildly aromatic silvery green leaves to the violet flower spikes with purple stems. Bees love the flowers that stay looking sharp long after the petals fall, thanks to papery bracts that hold their colour. Dead-heading – either little and often or in one go – encourages new flowering side-shoots till October. 'Caradonna’ loves sun; use it as a purple ribbon through late season grasses or, at 18in (45cm), it is the perfect centrepiece for a pot.
Dierama pulcherrimum, Blackbird. Full sun and in a warm, sheltered spot. Flowers June to August. Angel's fishing rod is perfect for introducing movement to a well-drained border in a sunny, sheltered site, or for overhanging water. Initially slow to establish, it looks particularly good with early autumn-flowering ornamental grasses. More: http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/dierama-pulcherrimum/classid.2694/
'The Vagabond’ Best for Long flowering The gorgeous cobalt blue of these very large flowers really stood out in the trial, and they still looked lovely even when they faded to a more washed-out pinky blue. The sheer flower power was also outstanding; at their peak the plants were almost completely cloaked in vibrant blooms. Bushy plants which didn’t attempt a getaway and silky, spidery seed heads also added to their charm. This was a fabulous plant from all angles. H x S 120cm x 70cm
