Dahlia imperialis caerulea

New for 2021!

Dahlia imperialis or Pale Blue Giant Dahlia 10 seeds  җ

This version of the Giant Dahlia has pale blue flowers. 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 pale blue 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.

Eucalyptus deglupta

New for 2021!

Rainbow Gum pkt seeds 

Eucalyptus deglupta or rainbow eucalyptus is a tall tree that is unique among Eucalyptus in that it's the only one to live in the rainforest and only one of four species found outside of Australia. It can be found in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea, where it can soar up to 250 feet. While its height is impressive, it's really the tree's multi colour bark that makes it stand out. As the rainbow eucalyptus bark sheds at different times , it first reveals a bright green inner bark but over time, this ages into different colours, blue, purple, orange, and maroon.

For the UK really only grown as a novelty as it needs tropical temperatures and I don't believe large enough trees under cover would show off their bark display.

Dancing Ladies Ginger 10 seeds

An excellent and unusual pot plant with many spidery sprays of purple flowers. This ginger dies back in the winter, with new shoots emerging from the underground rhizomes the following spring. Native to South-east Asia, these herbaceous perennials flower from July to November, and the picture does not capture their real beauty.

Ipomoea x imperialis Sunrise Serenade is an unusual old morning glory variety from Victorian days that has come back in fashion. Lovely deep pink and white, semi double flowers that make it quite unique. This proved to be a rampant and strong plant in our own seed trials.

Blue Tongue Aprx 20 tiny seeds

Melastoma malabathricum  is a small shrub from South East Asia and Australasia with hairy leaves and 2" to 3" purple/pink flowers reminiscent of Tibouchina. Quite a tough plant once raised to a sensible size from the tiny seed as long as the temperature does not fall below 10C. A good warm conservatory plant.

The seeds are tasteless and can be eaten, but stains the tongue black, hence the name melastoma which in Greek means "black mouth".
