      Chasmanthium latifolium
      for $7.00earn 35 points

      A moisture loving perennial grass forming a vase shaped clump of reed like stems with gracefully arching spring green leaves, topped by early summer with panicles of dangling flattened oats which quickly turn a warm tan while the foliage remains fresh.
      If cut to ground level while still summer a second crop can be produced, just as fresh but less grand.

      Winter dormant and holds its form well initially but is very brittle, making it easier to snap down, rather than cut down, to make way for next seasons growth when you tire of it. Can self sow in moist soil (you're watering too frequently) so cut before seed drop if annoying, you will still get have at least a couple of months of interest out of the seed heads beforehand.

      Native to most of south eastern United States and easily grown in any summer moist soil and performs quite well in light shade. I favour it in separate elegant clumps rather than massed and it can be stunning in a fancy pot.

      Cyrtanthus elatus ‘Delicatus’
      for $7.00earn 35 points

      A selected pink form of the well known and scarlet flowered C. elatus and just as easily grown. An evergreen, South African bulb, excellent as a cut flower or pot subject to be brought indoors at flowering time. Stout stems bearing large, mid pink, open, trumpet shaped flowers sporadically appear throughout the warmer months from quickly clumping, strappy, leathery leaves.

      Happy with short periods of dryness but better with regular water to imitate its natural habitat of stream sides and moist slopes. Good drainage is of course essential as is a little shelter from scorching summer sun, though too much shade will affect flowering.

      A garden quintessential that really shouldn't need an introduction but then it is not seen today as often as it once was, so here goes.

      Mounds of softly haired, bright green, broadly lance shaped leaves grow over winter and erupt in spring with clusters of small, five petalled, yellow centred, azure flowers.

      As seen in deciduous woodlands throughout Europe and best sown en masse in similar conditions, or the shady side of your house, where it will hopefully naturalise or even become your most attractive weed. Works in a pot too.

      Intolerant of sunny, dry conditions and snails but otherwise dead easy and gorgeous.

      Scratch into cool moist soil in late autumn or early winter. Each pack contains 50+ seeds.
