Perennial & Biennial Plants


In this range you'll find an impressive selection of perennial plants and biennial plants, which are perfect for beginners and experienced gardeners alike. Also known as herbaceous plants, perennial plants live for 2 or more years and flower every year. Biennial plants live for up to 2 years, flowering profusely in their second year before setting seed and dying. Both are great for beds and spring displays and there are many delightful plants to choose from.

Digitalis

 Customer Rating
  • Winner of Plant of the Year 2012 - RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Best new product at the Anglian Business Awards, Best new product at the Garden Retail awards
  • T&M's own breeding

Thought to be an impossible hybridisation, this is the most spectacular foxglove you will have ever seen! Parentage from the little-known Isoplexis (Canary Island Foxglove) gives this exciting new Digitalis its fabulous tropical colouring. Being completely sterile Foxglove ‘Illumination’ won’t set seed, giving it an incredibly long flowering period. Unlike most foxgloves which are generally biennial, this half-hardy semi-evergreen is a true perennial so you will be able to enjoy its flowers for years to come. The exotic looking blooms are densely packed on sturdy stems, with many side branches, making a striking addition to summer borders. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Digitalis x valinii

  • New colour break
  • Multi-flowering Foxgloves
  • Prennial habit

The Digitalis Illumination Series, from our very own breeding programme, has changed the world of Foxgloves; taking them from a wiry, brief-blooming biennial wildflower to a handsome, tidy yet shrubby perennial with true garden performance.

Following several outstanding colour developments, our breeding team has done it again with the creation of a brand new colour break. Digitalis 'Illumination Ruby Slippers' is the latest addition to our award winning series. This beautiful foxglove produces multiple spires of open-mouthed blooms on short stocky plants that are just as at home in a patio pot as a cottage garden border scheme. Being completely sterile, this stunning Foxglove won't set seed, making it incredibly long flowering. As the main flower spike fades, multiple sideshoots spring up to offer five months of vivid floral colour. Parentage from the little-known Isoplexis (Canary Island Foxglove) gives this exciting new Digitalis its fabulous colouring and perennial habit. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18")
