Alternative plant

Hello and good morning everyone well this week only Wednesday so for the last two day I’ve been cutting my hedge and I think I’ve made a small dent in the garden 12 trips to the local tip with garden waste (big trailer) and a car boot full as well I’ve even found a car front end in a corner of the garden LOL.

Any way I would like to find a plant similar to Livings stone daisy that is Perennial but I can’t think of any? Colour I’m after is blue and pink for a border to my front garden.

    Blue is hard but pink is easy. There are various Lamprnathus in pink and Delosperma. Mind none of these Mesambrainthemum type plats are truly hardy.

  • Berghill thank you 

    what about blue and yellow or white ??

  • I have bought some plug plants Papaver 'DOUBLE TANGERINE GEM' and would like a dark Blue daisy like plant to go with it or even a corn flower that will flower at the same time as the Papaver the flowering posion is full sun 

    I also have bought some Koi flowers that are so so fantastic and ORANGE they are the star in my garden. I've never see anything like them before
