A compact lavender, named after Gertrude Jekyll's garden at Munstead Wood. It produces dense spikes of fragrant, bluish-purple summer flowers above slender, aromatic, grey-green leaves.
This is a lovely lavender for edging paths and borders; the aromatic foliage perfumes the air if you brush against it. The flower-spikes are highly attractive to bees and other nectar-loving insects.
Arabis caucasia 'Deep Rose' is a mat-forming, evergreen perennial with loose rosettes of oval, toothed, grey-green leaves and short, upright stems bearing racemes of fragrant, four-petalled, deep rose-pink flowers in late spring.
Ajuga reptans 'Chocolate Chip' is a ground-hugging plant prized for its blue-purple flower spikes on display in mid to late spring. The blossoms rise slightly above the foilage of tiny, glossy, oval leaves which are chocolate with burgundy highlights.
Commonly known as Sea Pink or Thrift, this low growing plant forms a compact mound of grass like leaves. It's pretty globular white flower heads with bloom from April - June. Perfect for coastal gardens or rockeries, but will also do fine in flower beds.
Armeria maritima Splendens is a robust, clump-forming, evergreen perennial with deep green, grass-like foliage and rounded heads of intensely-coloured, deep pink blooms. These are produced on erect flowering stems between May and August and contrast beautifully with the foliage.
Sedum reflexum 'Lemon Ball' is a compact, dense, mound-forming, evergreen to semi-evergreen perennial with fleshy, cylindrical, pointed, bright yellow-green leaves, often with bronze tips, and short stems bearing terminal clusters of star-shaped, yellow flowers from late spring into summer.
Arabis caucasia 'Aubris White' is a fast-growing evergreen groundcover, which features clusters of small, lightly scented white flowers in late spring into summer.
Alpine plans originate from high altitudes in areas where there cold dry winters and good light levels, perfect for Irish winters provided they have good drainage. Alpines are hardy plants as long as they are not sitting in water so they make the perfect choice for rock gardens and planting up in pots and basins with good gritty soil.
