De­vel­oped by Aus­tralian suc­cu­lent breeder At­tila Kap­i­tany, Kleinia ‘Tri­dent Blue’ has fork-shaped, stubby, blue-grey fo­liage. This low grower is frost and drought hardy, and makes an in­trigu­ing ac­cent in sunny gar­dens and pa­tio pots. A 10 cent do­na­tion from each sale goes to Be­yond Blue. ramm.com.au

The flower spikes on Bud­dleja ‘Wis­te­ria Lane’ re­sem­ble its name­sake. Bloom­ing gen­er­ously from spring to late au­tumn, the flow­ers at­tract ben­e­fi­cial in­sects. At 2m high and wide with a weep­ing habit, this butterfly bush works well against a fence or used as a flow­ery back­ground shrub. proven­win­ners.com.au

New daisy Ar­gy­ran­the­mum Gran­dessa is a daz­zler, with flow­ers larger than nor­mal. Bold Yel­low has a dark cen­tre, while Sun­set, Red and White have dark cen­tres edged in yel­low. The bushy plants to 60cm high and wide are good in pots. Trim back spent flow­ers and liq­uid-feed reg­u­larly. flo­ri­ana.com.au

Senecio ‘Moon­light Vel­vet’ is eye-catch­ing in bor­ders, gar­den edges, path­ways or in pots. Sim­i­lar to lamb's ears, with its dense, spread­ing habit, this frost-hardy ev­er­green peren­nial is good in Mediter­ranean and cot­tage gar­dens. sprint­hor­ti­cul­ture.com

Flow­er­ing for up to nine months a year in sun or shade, three new va­ri­eties have joined the lineup of princess lilies. Billed as the most com­pact Al­stroe­me­ria on the mar­ket, the carmine ‘Fe­line’, pale pink ‘Eliane’ and sunny ‘Lisa’ are drought hardy, and happy in a pot, on the pa­tio or in a bor­der. ramm.com.au
