New plant launches at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Posted in Media and Publicity on 21 May 2016

We’re really excited to be working with Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants again to launch two new plants at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show. Cirsium rivulare Frosted Magic (=LOWCIR) was bred in the UK by Lowaters Nursery in Hampshire. Frosted Magic makes a great companion to the well-known Cirsium rivulare Atropurpureum – it is the world’s first white flowered form of Cirsium rivulare. Cirsium are sturdy, easy to grow perennials for sunny positions, reaching 120cm tall. They have a long flowering season from mid May until late summer and are great for garden or landscape use. Cirsium are perfect plants for contemporary “prairie style” planting. They also make a good cut flower and are popular with bees.

  Nepeta x faassenii Crystal Cloud is an exciting new variety of catmint. Bred by Sonia Wright, a specialist nurserywoman from Wiltshire, Nepeta Crystal Cloud has very beautiful pale lilac flowers – a new colour in catmint. The foliage is grey-green and the plant has a tidy, upright habit with good branching, reaching 45cm. Nepeta are popular plants for sunny spots in a border or container. They are easy to grow, flower for a long period throughout summer and are a favourite with bees. This variety makes a great companion for darker flowered varieties.
