Our most requested plant from the Combat Stress Therapeutic Garden

Well, I could hardly leave our most requested plant identification off the website. It was Francoa sonchifolia 'Rogersons Form'. A lovely frost-hardy perennial that has stunning spires of pink flowers about a metre high that last from summer to early autumn. We planted it around the base of the multi-stemmed sorbus and the pink flowers set off the pinky bronze trunks quite beautifully.


  1. Nice blog...this has been a wonderful garden tour-thanks for sharing!

  2. The pleasure is all mine - it is a privilege and great fun to work in this area (although given the last few days sometimes cold, wet and miserable!!)
