Cyphomandra abutiloides

JS1951
!
Dwarf Tamarillo  Pkt җ
Cyphomandra abutiloides is a rare member of the solanum family. This is a tamarillo species grown in South America as a food plant, but the taste is not to my liking. It produces clusters of orange 1/2” berries amongst large, heart shaped downy leaves. Not totally hardy, but makes an excellent summer bedding plant reaching at least 6ft from seed in one season.

Dahlia Bishops Children

Bedding Dahlia  Aprx 50 seeds җ
Dahlia Bishops Children was developed from the original and popular Dahlia ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ this is a new generation of tall seed grown dahlias with red bronze elegant dark foliage and stems, topped by rich single flowers in shades of red, orange, pink and gold. Grows to 3ft tall by 2ft wide. Tubers may be kept for future years planting or for cutting material of the best colours.

Dahlia Cactus Flowered Mixed

JS2797
!
Cactus Bedding Dahlia Aprx 50 seeds җ
Dahlia Cactus Flowered produces superb bold flowering dahlias with large, spiky 'cactus' blooms in a range of attractive colours. They are quite tall plants to 4ft, making them ideal for creating a statement in bedding displays or herbaceous borders, where they are particularly useful for filling in gaps that appear as other plants go to seed. They are frost tender, but can be re-used each year if the tubers are lifted in the autumn and stored in a frost-free place. Some people reckon that you can cook and eat the roots of these large cactus types like sweet potatoes but the flavour may be somewhat questionable?

Dahlia Coccinea

!

Mexican Dahlia 10 seeds җ

Dahlia Coccinea is  fantastic, large, mostly deciduous perennial that grows from an underground tuber to 1.5 m tall and flowers profusely throughout the warm season with masses of large, bright red flowers on long stalks. Dahlia coccinea is widespread in seasonally dry woodland and scrubland from southern Mexico to El Salvador from low elevations to 3400 m. Flowers and foliage are frost sensitive but the underground tubers can manage to survive even cooler, temperate winters with copious mulching, or in the UK best dug up and kept in a cool, dry place over the winter.

Dahlia Figaro Mixed

!
Dwarf Bedding Dahlia Aprx 50 seeds
Dahlia Figaro Mixed is one of the best bedding dahlia, Figaro offers a brilliant array of fully double 3" blooms on dwarf 35cm plants in a variety of colours amid fresh green foliage. These plants will retain colour from early summer until frost and flowers reliably from seed in the first year.

Dahlia imperialis

Dahlia imperialis or Giant Dahlia 10 seeds  җ

JungleSeeds is now are able to offer seed of this spectacular Dahlia. If you are into pretty Dahlia flowers then this is not for you! But - if you are into giant tree size foliage then Dahlia imperialis takes the cake. It is semi hardy and from our own experience will stand a normal winter left outside, regrowing from the root stock again in late spring the following year. In the UK probably 10ft is the best you may see in a season but in it’s natural habitat 10 metres is quite normal for 9 months growth! It does flower with pretty single pink flowers but by November the frost will probably have got there first. Has to be seen to be believed with huge 3" diameter stems and massive leaves.

Dahlia Pompone Mixed (PomPom)

!
The Tree Echium  10 seeds җ
Echium pininana is a spectacular Echium from the Canary Islands, capable of producing a 12ft flower spike of deep blue flowers from a basal rosette of narrow hairy leaves. From my own experience it will only take -5˚C before being killed by frost but if you are in a warm area, you have to try this plant given room. It is really a biennial though flowering the second year from seed after which it will need replacing. Make sure you have plenty of room for this giant!

Echium Pink Fountain

Hybrid Echium  10 seeds  җ
Echium Pink Fountain is a cross between Echium pininana and Echium wildpretii, it produces enormous 10ft, tapering towers of dainty pink flowers over large rosettes of coarse, strap-like leaves, creating a real spectacle.

Erythrina crista-galli

JS168
!
Common Coral Tree 10 seeds җ
I have grown Erythrina crista-galli  on and off for years but it really needs a hot sunny conservatory to do well. Long terminal spikes of typical pea family bright red flowers. Tall plant flowering at 6ft+ but dies back to ground level in cold climates, watch out for the wicked thorns on the stems though! Easy to raise from seed and fairly fast growing.

Geranium F1 Horizon Mixed

JS1716
!
Geranium (Pelagonium) 10 seeds
Seed grown hybrid geraniums have come a long way over the last few years and are often indistinguishable from cutting grown hybrids, early to flower, good branching habit and zonal foliage. Geranium F1 Horizon range is an excellent example of a superb colour range and most with zonal foliage all with a compact habit and ideal for pot plants or bedding. I remember the first geraniums I grew from seed many years ago when they first came on to the market and I would have given my right arm for this or the Maverick selection!

Geranium F1 Maverick Mixed

!
Geranium (Pelagonium) 10 seeds
The Geranium Maverick series bred for volume commercial use is one of the best seed grown geraniums, easy to grow and very uniform to flower on strong zonal foliage. Large 15cm shatter resistant flower heads in a wide range of colours make them very suitable for bedding out or for Pot/Patio use.

Hibiscus coccineus

Swamp Hibiscus 10 seeds җ җ

Now here is an interesting one for you to try out in a tropical border. Hibiscus coccineus is a large red flowered Hibiscus able to take between -5°C to -10°C but not making so large a plant after recovery. It comes from the swamps of Florida and Louisiana, but I usually over winter them in a frost free polytunnel and then use the plants for tropical bedding rewarding me with huge red flowers on 6ft plants worthy of any tropical bedding. Pretty delicate light green hemp type foliage. It naturally dies back to the ground during winter then regrowing up to 10ft in its natural habitat.

Hibiscus Disco Belle Mixed Colours

Lantana camara mixed hybrids

!
Lantana  20 seeds 
From my own experience Lantana camara is not easy to grow from seed unless it is soaked first and the outer berry husk removed before sowing. We have identified what we believe to be a good seed source for these excellent pot or summer bedding plants. I have a very old plant trained as a 5ft standard that makes a spectacular display each year in our borders.

Meconopsis betonicifolia

JS2563
!
Himalayan Blue Poppy 50 seeds җ
Meconopsis betonicifolia is a fabulous plants with stunning blue flowers but not easy to grow without the right conditions. The trick is to sow them cool in early spring and plant them in a shady cool damp but well drained situation. They produce a rosette of bristly leaves and then in late spring they send up a flower shoot several feet tall which produces one or more terminal flowers usually followed by further flowers lower down the stalk. The blue colour ranges from a clear pale sky blue though intense pure blue to violet shades.  The rosette of foliage will remain over the summer in cool damp climates, but even in England it will become very battered and may even disappear for a while like an Oriental poppy. The flowering rosettes die as winter arrives, but strong plants will have produced offset rosettes and so will spread into a clump over the years.
