Bearded iris

... Bearded iris (Iris germanica), is one of the most popular irises to grow. With sword-like foliage and flamboyant blooms from May to June, it makes a striking addition to hot sunny borders. Each bloom is made up of large outer and inner petals, known as ruffs and falls, respectively. Bearded iris are so called because of the hairs growing along the centre of the falls.

Savias can be very hardy although the summer flowering varieties can be tender,



Agapanthus, also known as the African lily, is herbaceous perennial. They flower during the summer, and have flowers in the common shades of blue and purple, and also white and pink. Agapanthus love to grown is well drained soil, and thrive in a sunny position. They thrive in any well-drained, sunny position in the garden, or grow these beauties in containers.
