Comment

Erect, rhizomatous form. Grow in moist herbaceous border, bog garden, pond margin or for naturalizing in a wild or woodland garden. May be invasive. Pruning Group 14.

"Garden Lysimachia is a lovely plant for full sun and half shady areas, they flower massively during July- September with clear golden flowers enhanced by bright green foliage on the flower stalks. Lysimachia is also suitable for wet spots, even at the side of a pond they thrive well (up to 5cm of water) they spread slowly into larger clumps.

Cut down to ground level in Autumn" from Garden Oasis .

"Not to be confused with the noxious weed Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria). This is a vigorous species that has been grown in gardens since Victorian times. Plants form a bushy, fast-spreading clump of green leaves, with loose spikes of bright-yellow starry flowers appearing in early to mid summer. In the border this will need to be reduced in size every year or two in order to keep from taking over. Tolerates shade under trees, with regular summer watering. Attractive to butterflies. Nice for cutting." from Heritage Perennials .

"It is an erect, rhizomatous, spreading perennial with elliptic to lance-shaped, dark green leaves and, in summer, whorls of cup-shaped, yellow flowers borne on short stalks from the leaf axils." from Shoot.

This and other cultivars are available from Shoot in the UK and from Heritage Perennials in America. Seeds available from Plant World Seeds.

Companions

Heuchera, Plantago, Hosta, Siberian Iris, Echinacea purpurea, Rudbeckia, Ligularia, Anthemis and Ornamental Grasses.

Good cut flower.

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

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.

 

Diascia Photo Album

"I hope these pictures will help you identify the diascia you have.   They are sometimes close-ups, sometimes long shots and most are scanned from photos or slides.  They have been taken by my brother William or me unless otherwise credited.  I aim to give a botanical description based on the writings of Hilliard & Burtt and Dr Kim Steiner in time." from Christine Boulby.

Diascia 'Red Ace'

diasciacfloredaceboulby1a

Bred by Hector Harrison and protected by Plant Breeders Rights.  One of the reddest flowered diascias around, and on some of the deepest green foliage it is a stunner.  Survives a good deal of dryness, and ideal for baskets.

Diascia rigescens

diasciaccflosrigescensboulby1a

Distinguished from other species by a yellow 'median keel' of glands on the lower lobe of the flower.  This photo shows its with Cistus ladanifer.  A lovely combination.

Diascia rigescens 'Anne Rennie'
Photo by David Fenwick

Similar to above but flowers a slightly paler shade and carried in rather more loose racemes.

Diascia rigescens x lilacina

One of Hector's earliest crosses and given to Blooms of Bressingham.  Nice mauve flowers and good foliage.  Prostrate habit.  Good in baskets but its a bit of a thug

Diascia 'Ruby Field'

diasciacflorubyfieldboulby1a

Bred by John Kelly and introduced in 1971.  Although he gave details of the cross he made to create it, we are not sure of the species he actually had due to name problems.It has nice blousy flowers on prostrate foliage and has been used in alpine beds for many years in the UK.

Diascia 'Rupert Lambert'

diasciacflorupertlambertboulby1a

Bred by Rupert Lambert.  Plant has upright habit and reddish flowers. 

Diascia 'Salmon Supreme'

diasciaccflossalmonsupremeboulby1a

Diascia 'Selina's Choice'

Bred by Hector Harrison.  Plant has a very neat habit.  Apricot flowers in abundance and looks great as a hanging basket.

Diascia 'Tiny Tom'

Bred by Hector Harrison.Tiny foliage and interesting pinky mauve flowers, this is one of the smallest and neatest diascias I've seen.

Diascia trials at Appleby, North Lincs

Hector's hardiness trials take place every year in his search for good garden-worthy plants.

Diascia 'Twinkle'

diasciacflotwinkleboulby1a

Bred by Hector Harrison and protected by Plant Breeders Rights. Although this diascia is one of his first successes, it remains a firm favourite of mine.  Has tight purple racemes of flowers on very lush dark green foliage.  Superb in hanging baskets.

Diascia vigilis

diasciacflovigilisboulby1a

 

Diascia vigilis 'Jack Elliott'

 

Diascia 'William'

Bred by Hector Harrison and named for my brother William.  Has mid-pink flowers on lush green foliage.  We have lost this one, if you have it we'd love to hear from you!

"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."
