Garden News (UK) - - About Now -

This pair of hardy, de­cid­u­ous, clump-form­ing peren­ni­als will perk up your sum­mer bor­ders. Both are ideal for a sunny or semi-shaded spot in well-drained soils. Agas­tache ‘Crazy For­tune’ is a new var­ie­gated form of bee balm, with mar­bled cream and green aro­matic fo­liage topped by smoky-blue spikes of flow­ers from high-sum­mer. Bees love it. H: 60cm (2ft), S: 45cm (1½ft). Pen­ste­mon ‘Dakota Bur­gundy’ pro­duces a cloud of small, laven­der-vi­o­let flow­ers in sum­mer, over dark pur­ple-ma­roon fo­liage. H: 60cm (2ft) S: 45cm (1½ft). Both cost £18 for three young plants. From www.hayloft-plants.co.uk, tel: 01386 554440.
