A large drift of Digitalis ferruginea, the rusty foxglove, at the Sussex Prairie Garden. This plant will grow in sun or partial shade and is a short lived perennial that is often treated as a biennial.

One of my favourite plants Ipomoea ‘Heavenly Blue’ (morning glory) is in full flower. This year I have planted this annual climber so it could grow up Syringa velutina (Korean lilac) which seems to be making an excellent support. For a display of these beautiful flowers sow the seeds in April/May in individual pots as Ipomoea hates root disturbance. Only plant out the young plants when the danger of frost has passed. The plants need good drainage but need to be regularly watered. The most wonderful display of these plants I have seen was in Greece when they had climbed over a silver-leafed olive tree.

Plant of the Day
Saturday 19 July 2014

Light is a very valuable performer in the garden and does so much to provide a constant sense of change, drama and atmosphere. Grasses are particularly good when backlit by low sunlight and here Stipa gigantea plumes glow with Echinacea Sussex Prairie Seedling in the foreground. This form of Echinacea has been selected to survive the winter and self seeds in Sussex with white, pink, purple and the occasional orange flowers.
