Three shade-tolerant Geraniums chosen by plant hunter Lark Hanham

Geraniums are a fail-safe, handsome group of perennials that supply unparalleled interest – the hardy genus even boasts the RHS Plant of the Centenary, Geranium Rozanne. Geraniums offer a plethora of cultivar choices to suit any location or taste, while their ease of growth and readiness to thrive mean they are sought-after specimens for low-maintenance planting schemes. This attractive selection will provide luscious foliage and alluring floral shows; perfect for illuminating shady areas of the garden as each will tolerate reduced light levels and bouts of drought with little impact.

Blue Sunrise AGM

Blue Sunrise arrives in spring dressed in an exceptional coat of lime-yellow and red-tinged, deeply-cut leaves. By mid summer, they mellow to a vibrant lime-green, which accentuates the charming, tumbling habit. Its long-lived blooms blush lilac, pink and mauve from May to August and each petal is intricately lined with magenta and a paler centre. The final showdown is in autumn as the foliage flushes flame red. Height 40cm and spread 60cm.

clarkei 'Kashmir White'

Geranium clarkei 'Kashmir White

Flowering from May to September, Kashmir White is renowned for its relentless flowering periods – great for repeating through the garden to draw the eye and provide continuity. This Geranium literally billows with blooms. However, it’s best enjoyed in detail, where you can see each petal is defined by a delicate pink veining. Its foliage is a lush mid-green, offering perfectly formed seven-lobed leaves, which look great when teamed with purple and blue flower plants. Height and spread 45cm.

WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Alstroemeria Duc d'Anjou 'Georges'

Darkest Peruvian Lily

Why

After visiting the national collection holder of Alstroemeria in the sunny, rich-soiled Loire valley, I couldn’t resist snaffling up the entire stock of the world’s darkest Peruvian Lily. It has been stabilised and improved, and will delight any gardener.

Where

For optimum performance and longer flowering, the best location would be a border or container in full sun with a well-drained soil substrate to ensure its tuberous roots don't rot.  

How

Add lashings of grit to the planting hole and give plants sufficient space to fill out as these 9cm potted plants will grow quickly once planted. It’s also advised that blooms are pulled at the base of their frame rather than cut. 

Works well with…

Team its intricately flecked, white smudged petals with Lysimachia Beaujolais, Knautia macedonica and Astrantia Venice for the ultimate rich red collection. Height and spread 50cm.
