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!

Commelina dianthifolia

Bird-bill Day Flower, Widow's Tears

 Customer Rating

A very rare plant indeed. This is one of the few plants with such intense blue flowers and that will also perform well in the garden. Flowering in its first year with 2.5cm (1in) gentian blue flowers, it then produces tubers and springs back to life the following year with an unceasing display of blooms. Wonderful in containers, rock gardens and the border (regardless of soil conditions). Hardy down to -8/-10C. Flowers summer. Height 15-30cm (6-12in.)

Pansy 'Jolly Joker' F2 Hybrid

Viola x wittrockiana

Jolly Joker, awarded the AAS Medal 1990 and the 1990 Fleuroselect Gold Medal, is probably the most spectacular pansy of its class. The intense orange of its lower petals, contrasts sharply with the deep purple of the upper petals. The effect is both unusual and intriguing. A very versatile and hardy variety which can be sown early for summer flowers or in summer for flowering in autumn and spring and even; in mild winters, through the winter. Height: 15-23cm (6-9in).

Viola hybrida 'Sorbet Yesterday Today & Tomorrow' F1 Hybrid

Pansy

 Customer Rating

Yesterday they were almost white, today they are light blue and tomorrow they will be deep blue. Totally unique, as each flower rapidly changes colour. In most areas they are more hardy than Universal Pansies and will provide winter colour when seldom else is flowering. Spectacular for spring bedding and containers.
