Cosmos 'Sonata Hot Pink Mixed' - Large, daisy-like flowerheads, that come in an array of white and pink shades, appear non-stop throughout the summer and right up until the first frosts. Superb as border plants, they will also flourish in large pots - and their fine, feathery foliage is also attractive.

Lavender serves a multitude of purposes from being great for bees, dried for home scents, cut for flowers and finally being used as a boarder for a path. I love this cottage style garden and how they have used lavender to soften the harsh paving and path way. Love it;-)x
Shasta daisies bloom over a long period, from early summer until fall, forming tidy clumps from 2 to 3 feet tall and up to 2 feet across. The bright flowers contrast nicely with the glossy, dark green foliage, livening up any garden bed. The flowers are also suitable for cutting.
Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldsturm' - Large, golden-yellow, daisy-like flowers up to 12cm (5in) across with cone-shaped, blackish-brown centres from August to October. This award-winning black-eyed Susan looks great planted in bold drifts with other late summer-flowering perennials and ornamental grasses. Coping well in a sunny spot, it's ideal for the middle of a border that doesn't dry out over summer.
Erigeron karvinskianus 'Mexican fleabane' Masses of small daisies, emerging white, then turning pink, with yellow centres, give this plant an unusual, two-tone effect. It has a long flowering period, from May to October, and is amazingly versatile, being low-growing, happy in su sun or partial shade and thriving in any well-drained soil. It's also tolerant of coastal conditions. Try it as an edging plant in a mixed border, alongside paths, in a gravel garden or spilling over walls.
