Plants ( D to J )


Reliable, long-flowering daisies. They prefer a sunny position in a moderately well-drained soil.


A range of sun-loving perennials for soil with good drainage. The flower heads are thistle-like and the central cone is often surrounded by decorative, spiny bracts. Some come in wondeful shades of blue.


These perennials are often used in hot colour schemes and work well at the front of the border. Some cultivars produce flowers over a long season. They appreciate good, rich, well-drained soil and adequate light. Deadhead to prolong flowering and divide every few years.
