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.
Rose Lily Grass
RhodohypoxisDainty, jasmine-like flowers in two shades of pink erupt in profusion above short clumps of lance-shaped foliage in late spring, followed by flushes of flowers throughout the summer. Giving a long-lasting display throughout the summer months, these starry gems also have a delicate sweet fragrance. Each Rose Lily Grass plug plant contains more than one bulblet for prolific flowering in borders, rock gardens and containers. Although fully hardy, Rhodohypoxis will need protection from winter wet. Height and spread: 15cm (6"). More info
Lupin 'Russell Hybrids Mixed'
LupinusTall spires of tightly packed flowers rise above clumps of palmate foliage in a magical array of colours. This wonderful mix of the ever popular 'Russell Hybrids' is ideal for adding height and structure to the back of perennial borders and woodland edges. A distinctive hardy perennial that remains a cottage garden favourite. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 50cm (20"). More info
Dianthus 'Purple Rain'
There are some genetically modified varieties out there with a blue tinge to the petals but Dianthus 'Purple Rain' is the closest to a natural blue carnation that we’ve seen. This modern hardy Carnation has an exquisite fragrance that is almost as alluring as its colour. Undemanding and well behaved, this clump forming perennial is perfect for the front of borders and makes a lovely cut flower too. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 30cm (12").
