Vinca major 'Variegata', Vinca minor 'Atropurpurea', Vinca minor f.alba 'Gertrude Jekyll' (Variegated Greater Periwinkle, Lesser Periwinkle)
Pretty, evergreen groundcover plants with wiry stems of dense foliage and star-shaped flowers throughout spring and summer. This wonderful Periwinkle Collection includes three popular varieties in a mixture of vibrant colours. Perfect for brightening up a sunny or shady spot in the garden, grow periwinkles on steep banks, in woodland gardens and borders, or let them creep around the base of shrubs. Tolerant of even clay soils, these tough, hardy perennials are an excellent choice for low-maintenance gardens. Supplied as plug plants.
Hosta 'White Feather'
(Plantain Lily)A very unusual variety! Emerging leaves appear almost totally white, slowly developing green streaks until the whole leaf turns green. Spikes of lavender flowers tower over the lush foliage from mid summer. Unlike other varieties, White Feather tolerates a sunny position making an attractive border or container plant. Also excellent as ground cover in woodland gardens or on the outskirts of ponds and boggy areas. Height and spread: 45cm (18"). Supplied as size one bareroot plants. More info
