Top 3 plants

Which 3 plants have given you the most pleasure this year? Mine have been Clematis Amethyst Beauty, Dahlia Nuit d'ete and Alstroemeria Pandora because they have flowered their socks off for monthsimage

    Stipa Gigantea here too, still looking good, salvia 'Penny's Smile' been  flowering since May and still going strong and a lovely clematis 'Kaiu' which covered two huge shrubs and flowered all summer, that's not including all the daylilies of courseimage

    2. Various alstroemerias, still flowering well after many months.

    3. Daylilies.

    Rudbeckia indian summer - which is still flowering its socks off now year it'll be a different 3 .....thats why I love gardeningimage


  • I'm googling all of these, I can see my wishlist getting a lot longer, I know Verdun choosing only 3 is tough, shall we do top ten?image


  • Kathy I love daylilies but have so little space in sun, is there one that will cope with shade? The two Salvia's mentioned so far are gorgeous and that Lupin Punkdoc- I love, love, love it, what a colour!

    Primroses, Arthur Bell roses and a blue geranium I don't know what it's called but it's  not the one with the pointy leaves and pansies with angry faces.

    In London. Keen but lazy.
