Zinnia marylandica 'Zahara Starlight Rose'

Truly spectacular 2010 AAS award-winning bedding plant! The pretty white flowers with an attractive pinky-rose centre are 6cm (2.5in) across when fully open. Bushy, dwarf plants flower freely and are so tolerant of such conditions as heat, humidity and drought that they were planted extensively in floral displays at the Beijing Olympics.

Non-stop-flowering Zinnia Zahara Starlight Rose follows on from the success of Zahara Yellow and will similarly attract beneficial insects, such as butterflies, to the garden. A real 'must' for borders this season!

Nasturtium 'Banana Split'

Tropaeolum minus, Indian Cress

 Customer Rating

Showing superb garden performance in our trials, this eye-catching nasturtium produces masses of lovely golden-petalled flowers which sit on top of lush green foliage. The slightly ruffled blooms fade to lemon as the season progresses whilst the lax, bushy, slightly spreading habit makes Nasturtium Banana Split a must for containers as well as the front of borders where it will flower freely all summer.


Culinary note: The peppery flavour of the leaves and colourful flowers will enrich salads and the unripened seeds can used like capers – delicious combined with cream cheese or butter in canapés. For more details about edible flowers click here.
