Elfin Juliana - Is a lovely, vibrant deep red flower with a white eye, I have this in my front garden and it’s a showpiece for months on end. This is my personal favourite. It has grown right through the winter and I notice now that the buds are plumping up for the first flowering. Height 40 – 50 CMS.
Elfin Primrose Petite - This is a firm favourite with many of my friends; the clear lemon flowers appear in mass from mid spring until late autumn. The foliage is an attractive blue grey and the flower contrast beautifully. This plant is lovely grown in a tub or container. Height 40 CMS
Elfin Annabel - Deep dark green leaves set off the pure white flowers nicely. An abundance of flowers are produced for a very long period. This variety is slightly taller that the other Elfins and it tolerates dry periods well.
Federation “Summer Stars” - A recent release variety with shell pink flowers that have a small yellow centre. The flowers sit up on the foliage and a mass colour display is produced for months. Height 60 CMS
Federation “Sugar Buttons” - A white double daisy with soft lemon centres. Sugar Buttons forms a compact bush and is very free flowering. It has a cute compact habit. It does require protection from frosts. Height 60 cm by 60 CMS.
