It’s going to be a quick posting for this weeks Six on Saturday. I was out at a garden centre on Wednesday, like you do. I did buy two plants, see below. However, I have to say I was totally correct to buy these plants as it was my birthday, and a treat of new plants seemed the thing to do, how could I not. Had a tasty full English breakfast in the café before going to buy plants. What a great day. Okay ….

… it’s time for Six on Saturday.

1) Rose. Pink.
This rose is often a good doer. If there’s a lot rain about it does get spoilt. These three have turned out quite reasonably.

2) Heuchera, ‘Caramel….’
Cannot quite remember the whole name of this Heuchera. It has very distinctly different shades of leaves as the become older.

3) Heuchera ‘Forever Purple’
New plant. Spotted this, it was the only one on display, had to have it even though I looked at others. Now, to plant it in place in the border. I’ll find somewhere or may be look good in a glazed pot.

Cosmos ‘Fizzy White’

4) Imperata, ‘Red Baron’.
New plant. This is another striking plant that took my eye. After many times eying up the competition, yes there was many other plants I could have bought, but it had to be this one. Again, another plant to find place in the garden. Do the planting soon.

5) Hydrangea, Vanille Fraise’
it doesn’t seem many weeks a go that this Hydrangea was white but now the strawberry and darker colours are appearing.

6) Thunbergia, Black-eyed Suzan.
I’ve had mostly yellow or orange from these six plants and now the rose colour appears at last. Hoping that this put’s on a showy colourful display for the rest of season before the cold and frost puts and end to this delicate climber.
