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. Use the selections in the left menu to select the right plants for your garden.

Geranium 'Black Velvet Mix' F1

Pelargonium, Zonal Geranium, Zonal Pelargonium

 Customer Rating
  • Rarely available

Dark, enigmatic foliage makes a startling foil for the beguiling bright blooms of Geranium 'Black Velvet Mix' in four striking colours. The unique black leaves, produced on upright bushy plants, are edged with just a hint of green. This boldly coloured zonal geranium makes a striking addition to pots, beds and borders for long lasting summer colour. Height: 40cm (14”). Spread: 30cm (12”).


Although technically perennial, Pelargoniums are only half hardy and therefore normally treated as annuals in the UK. However, with care, they may be overwintered in a frost free greenhouse.
