New Plant Awards - Visitor Vote
Visitors to the HTA National Plant Show, sponsored by Hortipak, have voted Adenophora White Blaze from Darby Nursery Stock and Fairweather’s Nursery as Best in Show at the New Plant Awards. The Visitor Vote Award, sponsored by Floramedia, proved extremely popular and with so many great entries in this year’s awards visitors were spoilt for choice.
The tall flower spikes of this plant are covered in masses of white hanging bells throughout summer due to its long flowering period. Ideal for the middle of a border, it can add delicate vertical structure and soft colour. This cottage garden plant is hardy and very easy to grow.
