Hibiscus syriacus 'Oiseau Bleu' (Large Plant)
Hibiscus syriacus 'Blue Bird', Rose Mallow
Hibiscus flowers are some of the most exotic in the garden. These hardy shrubs are one of the last to break into leaf in late spring. But once they do, they're clothed in pretty three-lobed foliage until a late summer explosion of tropical, silky blooms that last right through into October, when much else had faded. Hibiscus 'Oiseau Blue', or 'Bluebird' as it is often named, requires little maintenance but enjoys a long, hot summer to produce the most stunning blue hibiscus flowers. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2m (6').More info
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Blue Danube' (Large Plant)
Hydrangea are one of the easiest shrubs to grow, and will perform extremely well in gardens up and down the UK. They will grow in sun or shade, and in most different types of soil. Although, remember that an acidic soil will give blue flowers, whereas an alkaline soil will produce pink blooms!
Hydrangea 'Blue Danube' has been specially selected for its deep blue flowers, with compact growth yet large, showy flower heads, 20cm (8") across. Grow in mixed borders, or in patio containers. Height and spread: 1m (39").More info
Santolina chamaecyparissus (Large Plant)
Cotton LavenderSantolina chamaecyparissus is an eye-catching small shrub, with yellow button flowers sitting atop the silver, ferny foliage in midsummer. The silvery foliage persists all year round, and plants are drought tolerant and will thrive on neglect. Cotton Lavender is a dwarf, evergreen shrub for any part of the garden. An excellent choice for Mediterranean themes, gravel gardens or patio containers. Height and Spread: 60cm (24"). More info
