Assorted planty recommendations - bush salvias and hardy geraniums
Can I pick the hive mind?
- I'd like to find a white geranium in a similar style to Rozanne, that highly floriferous throughout the summer until the frosts. Is there such a white plant?
- I'm interested in buying a salvia Nachtvlinder. Various different sites give differing flowering times. Some saying it ends in August and others say it goes until the first frost. I have Bumbles which happily flower from May to the frosts. Is NV similar to Bumble in your experience or a different animal? Do bees like it as much?
- I'm looking for a similar salvia (as above) in white (or very light pink). Hardy above -5oC, same flower shape, beloved of bees. Any suggestions please.
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
Regarding white varieties, l find they don't seem to be as tough as the other colours , but that may be just a coincidence. There don't seem many pure white, but this is very close and flowers for a long time.
I have this one on order so can't vouch for it yet (ignore the name on the link)
And this one described as creamy yellow, but the one l have looks whiter, more like it does in the photo
Hope this is of some help
Geranium Clarkei Kashmir White has a long flowering season, but it does have fine pink veining, so not a pure white.
