So many plants, so little time. During the craziness of spring at a garden centre, it's sometimes hard to go out and find a few plants that stand out and above the others. Here are six wonderful and diverse plants worth your attention and your garden space.

Digiplexis Illumination Flame

Digiplexis Illumination 'Flame'

This is an exciting new Foxglove family hybrid that has set gardeners hearts aflutter worldwide. Spikes of rose and soft orange make a bold and lasting statement in the garden, in containers and beds. Flowers continuously from early summer. R old flower spikes to encourage rebloom. Loved by hummingbirds and great as a cut flower. Best in full sun. Water and fertilize regularly. Grows 24 inches tall and 15 inches wide.

Fargesia nitida Juizhaigou | Red Clumping Bamboo

Red Clumping Bamboo

Fargesia nitida ‘Juizhaigou’

Fun to say, ("Joe -zye - go") and even better in the garden. This are and hard to find bamboo is a highly ornamental, non-invasive clumping bamboo with fine textured foliage and striking red canes that age to yellow. An excellent, cold-hardy specimen bamboo for the garden or in a container. Its upright habit makes it very suitable for hedges and privacy screens. Somewhat slow growing, but worth the wait. Clumps grow 8-12ft in height and 4-6ft wide. Best in full to part sun. Hardy in USDA zones 5-9.

Weigela Fine Wine

Weigela ‘Fine Wine’

Deciduous shrubs don’t often make my list, but this one is truly striking. Deep dark wine coloured foliage on a compact plant with abundant hot pink, tubular flowers in spring and early summer. What more could you ask for? Fine Wine is smaller than other varieties, growing on 2-4ft tall and 2-3 ft wide, with a neat habit. Prefers moist, but well drained soil in the sun. Deer resistant and adaptable for use as a foundation planting or in a border.

Euonymous Paloma Blanca

Paloma Blanca Euonymous

Euonymous japonicus ‘Paloma Blanca’

This evergreen foliage plant features upright growing pure white, beautiful growth in the spring turning green with age. Flowers in summer. Best when planted in full sun. Hardy to zone 6. Grows 2-3ft tall in height and 2-3ft wide. Limited quantities available.

Red n Pretty Hydrangea

Red n Pretty Hydrangea

While most people want a traditional blue mop-head hydrangea. This one is worth doing a double-take over. It is a superb deciduous shrub for use as an accent, a specimen or in the border. It prefers part shade and delivers a fabulous show with its splendid, abundant, showy red flower clusters. Handsome green foliage provides a additional interest. Grows a boldly branched, rounded form to 4-6ft high and 3-4ft wide.

Dianthus Kahori Pink

Dianthus ‘Kahori Pink’

Dianthus Kahori is a lovely evergreen perennial plant with attractive, light green, grass-like foliage and lovely small hot pink, fragrant flowers. It flowers continuously through the summer until the first hard frost. Shear the plants back lightly after blooming to maintain a tight, compact habit. Best in areas with good drainage and an excellent choice for hot,dry sites or gravelly soil. Also perfect for patios and containers. Prefers ful sun and grows 6 inches high and 12 inches wide. Hardy in zones 3-9.
