It is included in an evolving list of plants carefully researched and chosen by RHS experts. Divided into 3 groups these lists, linked below, are maintained by a team of RHS staff and are reviewed annually.
'Phantom' is an upright to spreading plant, 145 x 195cm, with strong, stiff stems supporting large, very dense panicles, tapering above, rounded below. Leaves are yellow-green, stems green, maturing to mid-brown. Fertile florets are pale pink and white. Sterile florets white with some lime green flushing, deep pink at maturity
'Limelight' is a robust, upright and spreading selection, 165 x 225cm, with very distinctive colouring. Leaves are yellow-green, stems pale grey-green, slightly blushed pink in places, pale brown below. Panicles form a very dense, broad cone, entirely green at first. Sterile florets open pale lime green, later grading through to white. A slight pink flush in places gradually deepens a little to give a pink and green colour mix at maturity
Pinky-Winky is a sturdy, upright to slightly spreading selection with a compact habit, 140cm high and 160cm wide. Foliage is yellow-green, stems are dark purplish-red, maturing to brown. The panicle is dense, conical and tapering. Fertile floret buds are cream with pink tips. Sterile florets open lime green, then pale to white, turning deep pink at maturity. Scent is spicy
Vanille fraise is a large-flowered cultivar that performs from mid-summer to mid-autumn. Fluffy, loose, pyramid-shaped flower panicles are creamy-white, turning shades of pink as they age, before finally taking on rich pink tones
'Kyushu' is an upright deciduous shrub with slightly glossy ovate leaves. Slender, conical flowerheads with many creamy-white sterile florets appear from late summer to mid autumn
'Brussels Lace' is a large, deciduous shrub with finely-toothed, mid to dark green leaves, and conical flowerheads, produced in late summer and early autumn, made up of small, creamy, fertile florets, mingled with large, white-aging-to-pink, infertile florets, creating a lacy effect
'Wim's Red' is a deciduous shrub, to 2m tall, with toothed green leaves. Strong, branching, red-tinted stems carry 30cm long, cone-shaped flower clusters from spring into autumn. The flowers change colour from white in spring through pink in summer before maturing to a wine-red in autumn
'Chantilly Lace' is an upright, deciduous shrub, to 2.5m tall, with ovate, glossy, dark green foliage. Large, conical flower panicles, to 25cm long and 15cm wide, are borne from summer into autumn and comprise an equal mix of sterile florets and fertile flowers that open a creamy-white colour before maturing to pink
'Dolly' is an upright, deciduous shrub, to 1.8m tall, with dark green, glossy, ovate leaves that taper to a point. Large, conical panicles of white flowers, reaching up to 25cm long, are borne from summer into autumn
'Unique' is a medium-sized deciduous shrub with ovate leaves. Flowers mostly large, sterile, white, ageing to purplish-pink, borne in massive, broadly conical panicles from late summer
