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.

Penstemon 'Wedding Bells' Mixed

 Customer Rating
Penstemon cobaea 'Wedding Bells' (also known as Orchestra Mixed) combines some of the best penstemons from T&M's own breeding programme. Satin, bell-shaped flowers in a variety of bright colours and patterns are carried over a particularly long flowering period, above glossy, semi-evergreen foliage. A fantastic alternative to Antirrhinums (snapdragons) in annual bedding schemes, these compact penstemon plants boast large flowers and superb weather resistance. Easy to maintain, these hardy perennials are also attractive to bees. Height: 50cm (18"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Foxglove 'Illumination Pink'

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").
