'Gerda' is a deciduous shrub or small tree, with deep purple foliage from spring to autumn and flat heads of small, pinkish-purple flowers, followed by purple-black berries
'Ashby' is a bushy plant growing to 90cm tall and wide at maturity. The lobed, scented leaves are mid- to dark-green and flowers are a pink-purple colour with dark central markings on the upper petals
'Claire Maxine' is most notable for its gleaming, puckered foliage, mid-green, reddening in winter. Flowers are deep pink but sometimes hidden beneath the leaves; flowers mostly in spring with sporadic flowers produced through to October
N. mutabilis is an upright annual to 1.5m tall with a basal rosette of large, oval leaves. In summer, airy clouds of trumpet-shaped flowers are borne on branching stems changing colour as they age from white through shades of pink
'Rotschwanz' is a rounded deciduous shrub with glossy dark green leaves that colour wine-red in autumn. Flattened lacecap flowerheads with large deep red, cross-shaped sterile flowers and fertile flowers of pink and white are produced in mid and late summer
R. campylogynum is a dwarf evergreen shrub with small, glossy leaves, glaucous beneath, and open bell-shaped, pale or deep rosy-purple or pink flowers 2.5cm across in late spring
'Arnhem' is a tall, herbaceous perennial that can reach 2m. The leaves have oval leaflets with jagged edges and the wiry, branched flower stalks carry deep rose pink, drumstick flowers in summer
'Forncett Summer' is a deciduous perennial, to 80cm tall, with divided, hairy leaves and single, bright salmon-pink flowers with overlapping, deeply fringed petals, each with a small, black basal blotch
'Hydon Dawn' is a compact evergreen shrub to 1.5m tall, of dense habit, with glossy, dark green foliage with cream felt beneath. Rounded trusses of frilled, pale pink flowers, 5cm in width, which fade to near-white, are produced in late spring
