Perennial & Biennial Seeds
Biennials live for 2 years, whereas perennials live for longer. As a general rule, biennial and perennial seeds should be sown in spring, but some can be sown in autumn as well. Many varieties will self-seed after flowering, giving you even more plants!

Flower of Death
This rare exotic plant is little known outside its native homeland of Mexico. A choice species, and seldom offered, Lisianthius nigrescens bears long, tubular flowers of the darkest black, on slender, towering stems. This extraordinary perennial makes a dramatic specimen plant and a fascinating talking point that will create interest and wonder at the back of borders. Lisianthius nigrescens is half-hardy but will require winter protection in a frost free environment during the winter months. Height: 180cm (71"). Spread: 50cm (20").
Sarracenia species 'New Hybrids Mixed'
Strikingly attractive pitcher plants which give no outward hint of their unusual dietary habits! They attract insects with their enticing scent, alluring colours and the promise of a nectar-like secretion on the lip of the 'pitcher'. A slippery footing on the bloom's rim causes unsuspecting insects to fall inside the cavity of the flower which is filled with a liquid. There is no escape; the insects die and are digested by the plant, it is thought, as a means of augmenting inadequate nitrogen levels in the soil. Height: 20-40cm (8-16").
