Bred by Earnst Pagels, the famous German plant breeder, 'Walther Funcke' is a vast improvement on the Yarrow's of yesteryear. As subtle as it is beautiful, Achillea 'Walther Funcke' has burnt orange flattened heads which fade to a creamy golden colour as they age. Sage green fern like foliage make for an attractive plant before any flowers appear. An easy to grow, adaptable perennial with a long flowering period and compact habit. 60 x 60cm.
For a splash of cerise pink in the garden ‘Cherry Queen’ will hit the mark. Forming a loose clump of feathery foliage, this showy variety has clusters of cherry-pink flowers through Summer and into Autumn. Great for cut flowers. Heat tolerant. 60 x 60cm in free draining soil.
This beautiful, compact growing Agastache has been bred for better branching and a greater tolerance to humidity. It's a shame they could not come up with a better name. Nevertheless this it is a good performing plant that features an abundance of darker purple flower spikes that bees and butterflies love. Full sun to part shade in a well drained soil. Looks good en masse. Also can be planted as a feature pot plant on a balcony. 50cm x 30cm.
Also known as Hummingbird Mint or Giant Hyssop, this plant is a superb addition to the perennial border. Tolerant of heat and cold, Agastache aurantiaca provides a blast of tubular, peachy-apricot flowers during Summer and flowers continuously until frost. The large quantities of essential oils in the leaves make the plant highly aromatic and also resistant to browsing animals. Full sun. 80cm x 40cm.
