What to plant this month

Carex Eversheen

This ornamental grass forms a low cascading clump of leathery dark green leaves with cream margins. It is easy to grow, low maintenance and forms a neat, easily controlled mound.

Fountain Bush (Russelia equisetiformis ‘Fire Cracker’)

A weeping shrub that, when in full bloom, looks as if it is raining flowers. These slender, red, tubular flowers appear in summer and hang on the plant like little fire crackers during most of the year.

Lavender (Laventel Lavandula dentata ‘Elegans’)

Bushy shrub, with fragrant dark green leaves and dark purple flowers from spring to summer. Excellent cut flower. Can be used as pot-pourri.
