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.

Hesperis matronalis (Large Plant)
Sweet RocketHesperis matronalis is at its best when grown in large drifts, leaving plenty to spare for early summer bouquets. Fragrant clusters of bloom, coloured pale lilac to purple, are produced from May to July. The richly scented flowers of Sweet Rocket are irresistible to pollinating insects, making this an excellent choice for both wildlife areas and the herbaceous border. Although Hesperis is a biennial or relatively short-lived perennial, it will happily seed about to create swathes of bloom that will perfume the air on warm summer evenings. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18").,
