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.

Poppy 'Ladybird'

Papaver commutatum, Caucasian Scarlet Poppy

Hardy annual Poppy ‘Ladybird’ was developed from a species introduced from Russia in 1876 by our founder, William Thompson - and is still as popular as ever! Brilliant scarlet red petals are set off beautifully by the contrasting black spots at the base of each petal. Although each bloom lasts only a few days, more fat, hairy buds are constantly rising from among the clumps of finely cut foliage. This fabulous Caucasian Scarlet Poppy is so easy to grow and holds an RHS AGM for its superb garden performance. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 15cm (6").
