Comment

Upright form. Pruning Group 14. Non-Poisonous.

"Rapidly developing into an airy mound as broad as it is tall, as much as 3' (3 feet) by 3' in rich soil. Covered with lavender-blue daisy flowers with a yellow center from July until a hard freeze. Normally not for extreme northern gardens, but worth a try with dependable snow cover." from Bluestone Perennials .

"Members of this group of asters were originally hybridized around 1920 by German plant breeder, Karl Frikart, and were produced by crossing the European species Aster amellus with Aster thomsonii, a species native to the Himalayas. The cultivar ‘Wonder of Stafa’ produces open, bushy plants with oval, somewhat fuzzy, medium-green foliage and large, yellow-centered, lavender-blue daisies which cover the plants in profusion over a long period from early summer well into autumn.

Aster x frikartii hybrids thrive in full to part sun and well-drained, reasonably fertile soil of average moisture. These perennials may be short-lived, but are well worth growing for their abundance of bloom and ease of culture. They are a fine choice for mixed borders or cutting gardens, and their lovely flowers are highly attractive to bees and butterflies." from Learn 2 Grow.

Available from 21 suppliers in the UK with Bluestone Perennials in America and Spring Garden in Canada.

"Their common name is twinspur, in reference to the two (usually downward-pointing) spurs to be found on the back of the flower. These help to distinguish them from the similar (and closely related) genera Alonsoa and Nemesia. The spurs contain a special oil, which is collected in the wild by certain species of bees that appear to have coevolved with the plants, as they have unusually long forelegs for collecting the oil.‪
In gardens, Diascia cultivars (mostly hybrids) have become extremely popular as colourful, floriferous, easily grown bedding plants in recent years." from Wikipedia.

 

"Diascias are sun-loving plants, but enjoy fertile rather than dry, poor soil. The cushion-forming types can get straggly so cut them back in late April and late August to keep them compact.
Hardiness can be a problem, but many will survive winter in well-drained soil.
You can containerise Diascia personata, but it has to be a substantial pot to balance the height of the plant. The ruby-pink flowers are excellent with dark blue agapanthus, purple dahlias or fluffy pennisetums.
At Great Dixter they use D. personata with the green and cream vertically striped grass, Miscanthus sinensis var. condensatus 'Cosmopolitan' to great effect. Graham Gough, of Marchants Plants, also uses it in his grass-led garden and he describes it as "remarkable and lofty"." from How to grow Diascia personata by Val Bourne in The Telegraph.

 

"Diascia is a natural for containers. You can fill an entire container with one variety or use a diascia plant as your spiller, in a mixed container. Diascia also makes a lovely edging plant and will elegantly flop over sidewalks and walls or throughout rock gardens.
Diascia perfers a slightly acidic soil pH. Something between 6.0 and 6.5 seems to be ideal.
It’s rare to find seed for Diascia, but there are some out there. Start seeds indoors, abou 6-8 weeks before your last expected frost. In warm climates, Diascia can be direct seeded. The hybrid Diascia won’t grow true from seed.
Diascia seed needs light to germinate, so just press the seed firmly on top of the soil, don’t cover it. It’s very important to keep the soil moist, since there’s nothing insulating the seed. Diascia seed should germinate within 2 weeks." from Gardening About in America.


Lazy S'S Farm Nursery in America
sell Deer Resistant Plants:- "Realize, if deer are starving or in extremely high concentrations competing for food, they will eat almost anything. These Plants are their last choice. By inter-planting with these plants, especially the fragrant herbs, you make you entire garden less appealing to them! They never bother our gardens and we're convinced that it's because we work in the fragrant 'herbs' -- Yarrows, Catmints, Agastache, Etc., in every bed -- and why not - they're gorgeous and long blooming.

Deer's primary defense is their sense of smell. When a garden has a lot of highly scented plants, the deer have trouble smelling predators and they realize that they are more defenseless. So use lots of fragrant herbs especially larger ones like Perovskia - Russian Sage and Nepetas that release their strong scent if the deer brush against them.

Also, Deer do not like grazing extremely low, or too high. Shrubs and trees with foliage 3-5 feet or higher will be less likely to have deer damage."

It is worth remembering that especially with roses that the colour of the petals of the flower may change - The following photos are of Rosa 'Lincolnshire Poacher' which I took on the same day in R.V. Roger's Nursery Field:-

There are 720 roses in the Rose Galleries; many of which have the above series of pictures in their respective Rose Description Page.

So one might avoid the disappointment that the 2 elephants had when their trunks were entwined instead of them each carrying their trunk using their own trunk, and your disappointment of buying a rose to discover that the colour you bought it for is only the case when it has its juvenile flowers; if you look at all the photos of the roses in the respective Rose Description Page!!!!

The variety of plants that can be used in alpine gardening is obviously very large and very bewildering at first approach. With a view to easing the task of selection here are lists
of alpines most likely to thrive
and flourish under certain easily defined conditions and for special purposes, with
Alpines and Paving.

The standard potting and seed-soil recipes from The Propagation of Alpines by Lawrence D. Hills are at the bottom of the page on Alpine - Sink and Trough Gardens.

Phlox paniculata 'Nesperis'

Dear Mr C H Garnons-Williams,   
Thank you for your enquiry to the Royal Horticultural Society's Members' Advisory Service. 
On investigation, I have concluded that the phlox labelled as 'Nesperis' in the garden is in fact: Phlox x arendsii 'Hesperis' . 
A search on the internet will generate a great deal of information on this cultivar.
I hope this information is helpful.
Yours sincerely,   

Tony Dickerson
Horticultural Advisor

Above email sent by the RHS on 13 September 2013 - plant label in Mixed Border bed still not changed by 23 November 2013.

I wonder if there is a mail-order nursery in China that grows and sells this plant in China with its information on its website in both Chinese and English? Then, I could copy the information from China into the Comments Row of that Plant Description page in this website with links to both its English and Chinese page from its Chinese Nursery website about that plant. The information in Chinese and it's English translation could be sent via email to The Embassy of China in Britain; and thence to me using this email address. Then, people from China visiting this country could inform their relatives where they also could get that plant.

I am attempting the same free link to mail-order nursery service for the people of Europe, Latvia, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
