Foxglove Mix - This  variety produces spires of white and pink tubular florets with vividly speckled throats. Flowers 1st year from early sowing fall sowing. Plants are hardy bi-ennials. Useful in a wild flower garden as it self sows easily. Ancients  founded the medicinal uses that are still used today in the treatment of heart problems. Hummingbirds love the early and late blooms. Cut flowering stems down to the ground to encourage second spikes.   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.   Red Hot Poker - Easy to grow! This evergreen perennial produces brilliant orange and yellow tubular flowers on slender spikes. They will tolerate wind and coastal conditions and thrives in a well drained, full sun, open location. For fuller more vibrant flowers, keep watered in hot summer months. Superb showy cut flower for large arrangements. Hummingbirds love this plant and will visit frequently.
