B&SWJ2281 Collected in northern India this form has spikes of gleaming yellow flowers over the red flushed leaves on red-purple stems. 30cm. Good soil in part shade, mulch well.
Proving hardier than expected this form of Cautleya cathcartii seems to thrive in cooler conditions here, full sun is too much for it so at least some shade is appreciated.
Achillea 'Inca Gold'£4.50
Brilliant light orange flowers with red tints, fade to a soft yellow over lovely greyish foliage. Neat clumps and one of the best in our opinion! Drained soil in full sun, divide and replant every 3 years. 75cm.
Impatiens pritzelii 'Sichuan Gold'£6.50
Similar to better known Impatiens omeiana and at least as hardy, this forms slow spreading patches of olive leaves and big creamy yellow flowers with orange-brown speckles to 40cm. Good soil in shade.
Stipa gigantea 'Gold Fontaene'£8.50
AGM A selection from Ernst Pagels with larger bronze-gold panicles up to 50cm long on 2.5m tall stems. Rather more imposing than the species. Can reflower in autumn. Drained soil in sun.
