Variety Profile

Varieties in the DRYSPELL range have been specifically selected due to their high tolerance of dry conditions once plants are mature and established.
These are varieties, which are known to be worthy 'all round' garden plants, require minimal maintenance with reliable performance.
For ease of recognition they have been labeled simply by the collection name followed by a descriptive colour although cultivar specifics always appear on the back of the label for those requiring more information.
It is hoped that the collection will help consumers identify plants which, although not always 'new', are solid performers in our current climatic situation eliminating the need to research suitability.
