    Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Sterling Silver'

    An invaluable true-blue soft cloud of a plant, brilliant for coming into flower as much in the garden goes over. Use it as you might spring-flowering rosemary - on the edge of a terrace, around some steps or by a door. It's aromatic too.

It will take salt too, so you'll often see this form in coastal…

    Sambucus nigra f. porphyrophylla 'Eva'

    The lacy black-crimson leaves and its soft, smokey-pink dome flower put this elder in a class of its own. Its AGM proves it's a cracker.
