Lychnis Maltese Cross - Striking contrast between the white and red 3 inch flower globes against bright green, lance shaped leaves  , borne on stiffly erect stems. Plant in masses for optimum wow factor.   Sea Holly - Vibrant silver blue foliage with metallic blue seedpods that sport radiant spiny bracts. Excellent in cutflowers & dried arrangements.

Great conversation piece for a dinner bouquet or garden focal point.Long grown in seaside gardens for its salt tolerance. Deer resistant.   Columbine Mix - Our Columbine patch was extraordinary this year. Now yours will be too! Early Flowers make a bold statement in beds borders, rock gardens and early bouquets. Grows well in part to full shade. Great selection for naturalized or woodland gardens.Gorgeous!
