Annual Plants


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.

Briza maxima

Greater Quaking Grass

  • New in 2014
Pretty and architectural, the wonderful Greater Quaking Grass produces shapely nodding seed heads on delicate stems, which sway and rustle in the slightest breeze. As summer progresses the green stems and seed heads slowly age to a golden straw colour and remain throughout the autumn for a long season of interest. Grow Briza maxima in beds, borders and containers, where the tall swaying stems create a relaxed and informal feel. Quaking grass plants also make a fantastic addition to fresh or dried flower arrangements. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 25cm (10").
