Diamond Awards of the Limited Edition Catalogue

The Tesselaar Diamond Award highlights plants of distinction.

All the plants we offer you are garden worthy, but for the prestigious Tesselaar Diamond Award, we select only those plants that stand out from the crowd. The best of the best.

Our criteria is based on their floriferous nature, their hardiness, their disease resistance, their ease of care, or their sparkle of exceptional beauty.

Diamond Award plants are exceptional, because like diamonds, gardens are forever.

Joyous Lilies

Aquilegia Songbird Series

The Aquilegia Songbird Series are F1 hybrids with larger, upward facing flowers with long spurs and more compact foliage than the common forms. The blooms average 7-8cm across.

Delphinium Sherwood Series

The Sherwood Series Delphiniums are stunning. The flowers open on lovely straight stems in summer and if treated well, again in autumn. The show lasts well and has a wonderful, romantic feel. The colours can be combined or singled out to create a delightful show. The crowns will last years and the flowers will set viable seed so Delphiniums are a great garden investment.

Peony Rose

Here are our limited release Peony Roses. The rare treats for the garden! Peony Roses make fabulous garden plants that will last for decades. Once they settle in and make themselves at home they will produce bountiful blooms for many weeks. The Peony Rose flowers are fantastic for picking and have a lovely perfume.

Tree Peony

Tree Peonies bring imperial splendour to your garden. They also make a wonderful cut flower. Tree Peonies look exotic and temperamental, and yet they are pretty hardy, and grow well in Cool to Temperate Australian gardens.
