Little-known perennials which, though hardly showy, are attractive and deserve wider recognition. (They are very difficult to obtain in this country.) Sabbatia campestris grows to about 1 ft. with deep rose flowers and is a hardy annual. Sabbatia chloroides is more perennial, rather taller and much the same colour, individual blooms being 2 in. across, Sabbatias seem to prefer a cool, peaty soil.
