Snow in Summer - Hardy, dwarf ,trailing and drought tolerant plants with silvery foliage, covered in a blanket of white blossoms. Great for rock gardens and walls. Early bloomer. Sheer spent flowers to promote further blooms.   Sea Holly - Vibrant silver blue foliage with metallic blue seedpods that sport radiant spiny bracts. Excellent in cutflowers & dried arrangements. Cut before they fully open as these will continue to open in the drying process. Hanging them upside down to dry ensures weaker stems do not flop over. Great conversation piece for a dinner bouquet or garden focal point.Long grown in seaside gardens for its salt tolerance. Deer resistant.   Wallflower - Scented goddess. The perfect border plant that is great in beds. This early, lengthy bloomer provides masses of sweetly scented flowers in marbled  and solid colours. Plant in a sunny, open position in well drained fertile soil. Cut back after blooming leaving  only a few leaves on each stem. Spectacular cut-flower. The incredible aroma easily fills a room. Very easy to grow and deer resistant. Great early Spring scent and colour. Will bloom early as  February in warm climates.
