Annual plants fall under two categories - hardy and half-hardy. Hardy annuals can be grown outdoors and will tolerate cooler tempratures, whereas the more tender half-hardy annuals need protection and must not be planted out until all risk of frost has passed. These delightful summer flowers add colour and interest to beds, borders, containers and hanging baskets. Use the selections in the left menu to select the right plants for your garden.

Ipomoea lobata, Spanish Flag
A vigorous exotic-looking climber with heart-shaped foliage, which quickly covers anything you want it to! The twining stems need no tying in and are perfect for rambling over trellises, fences etc. Every single bloom of Mina lobata is like a masterpiece; it's hard to believe they are real flowers sometimes! Expect up to 12 blooms on each spike that will produce a spectacular combination of flame shades as they age. They start off a most powerful and stunning bright red and as they mature go from red to orange, orange to yellow and from yellow to white and all are out at the same time. A plant positively loaded with flowers is an impressive sight. Commonly sold as a seed item, but we've done the hard work for you. Our Mina lobata plants will get off to a quick start once set out in the garden for a long season of vertical colour and texture. Climbs to 120-180cm (4-6ft).
