A low-growing succulent that has small plump grey-green leaves with an abundance of vibrant daisy-like flowers in the most eye-catching bright pink iridescent magenta shade with a pin-cushion yellow central eye. 

Lampranthus ‘Tresco Brilliant’ is mound forming, half hardy, neat and low maintenance plant and grows best in a sunny position so ideal for a rockery or container with free-draining compost or soil.  

In warmer areas of South West England and Tresco, on The Isles of Scilly, where the name is taken from, the plant can be in flower for most of the year, but generally is a perennial that needs some frost protection in exposed areas.

Our Plug Plants

Our plug plants are supplied in four sizes; small, medium, large and jumbo plugs....
The foliage height will differ depending on variety.

Small Plugs - Trays of 40
The most economical way to purchase your plants. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 2.3cm deep x 1.3cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Medium Plugs - Trays of 20
Our brassicas and lettuce are sold as medium plugs. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown for a short while on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 3cm deep x 2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Large Plugs - Packs of 5
Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants, individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4cm deep x 3.5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm depending on variety)

Jumbo  Plugs - Packs of 3
Our premium perennials are supplied as Jumbo plugs. These plans would benefit from potting into large pots (5” upwards”) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden.  Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm depending on variety)

In a mild winter you may find that the plants do not die back entirely, but usually the growth will die back until the following spring and then regrow. It may be a good idea to label the plants so that you know where and what they are!

Give the plug plants a good soak when they arrive, then pot them up and grow on (as per instructions for perennials) before transferring them into the garden.  Dead heading regularly will stop the flowers producing seeds and prolong the overall flowering season.

  • Coreopsis, also known as tickseed, and Lobelia prefer to be in full sun.
  • Erysium, Monarda and Gaillardia will tolerate shady parts of the garden.
  • Monarda are magnets for bees and other beneficial insects.
