This is my first year of growing Verbena as it's not a plant I've ever really thought about growing. I only grew it this year because I got 4 plants pretty cheaply early on and managed to get cuttings from them super easily. I don't know whether they will survive the winter outside here so I have taken more cuttings just in case but they certainly like where I planted them - they've grown to at least 4ft in height!
I'm not too sure of the name of this Heuchera, I have all the names listed but unfortunately the markers I put in the ground with them appear to have disappeared. This is it's second flush of flowers this year because I dead headed the last lot.
Montbretia is still flowering prolifically, I have the red variety 'Lucifer' but I do like this Orange variety 'Mistral' I think.
Hosta 'Golden Tiara' growing in a pot. It's not look at its healthiest because I think it gets a tad too much sunshine but it still adds some interest.
This unknown variety of Honeysuckle smells absolutely delicious and is the only one out of 4 Honeysuckles in the garden that is actually growing never mind flowering.
Escallonia 'Red Carpet'. I've tried many times to propagate this shrub via cuttings and haven't managed to get one to survive.
I've tried a few times to kill this grass but it just seems to re shoot regardless of what I do, if it wasn't so rampant I'd let it stay but .............
Leycesteria Formosa, this shrub looks lovely when it's dripping with flowers. It readily seeds itself so there's always seedlings available and the hollow stems look pretty cool in the winter.
Blooms of Fuchsia 'Tom Thumb' ready to burst open - this little Fuchsia is so hardy it handles even the coldest winter here in the Highlands.
