1. Calla ‘neon amour’
Produces wavy blooms of sizzling pink to vibrant red, colours that intensify with age. An excellent specimen for containers.  Lift and store bulbs for winter.  Blooms July-Sept., 40 cm.
(Van Noort Bulb Co.)

2. Delphinium ‘starmaker’
Oh yes, René van Gaalen strays from the straight and narrow once again with this long-blooming Belladonna type with a mind of its own. (Darwin PlantSpotters)

3. Echinacea ‘Jade’
An excellent addition to the Echinacea lovers’ pallet, its bright white petals are set off around a green cone. (Darwin PlantSpotters)

4. Geranium ‘confetti’
Amazingly unique new shades adorn this perennial Geranium. Pink blooms float above green foliage with splashes of cream and dark-green speckles. Has a nice low spreading habit and the colour is best on new growth. Spread some confetti in your garden. Zones 2-9.  Blooms May-Aug., 20 cm. (Van Noort Bulb Co.)

5. Malva sylvestris ‘Zabrina’
The very tropical appearance of these Mallow make them a must for the perennial border. The pure white flowers are striped with dark, wine-purple flames. They bloom throughout the summer, an old country garden favourite. Zones 3-9.  Blooms June-Sept., 80 cm. (Van Noort Bulb Co.)

6. phlox ‘pleasant Feelings’
The very latest addition to René van Gaalen’s bizarre series of petalless Phlox.
(Darwin PlantSpotters)

7. veronica ‘baby doll’
Compact, uniform, and ever-so-many flowers. This impressive pink dwarf could become an obsession. (Darwin PlantSpotters)
