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!

Poppy 'Coral Reef'

Papaver orientale, Oriental Poppy

 Customer Rating

A chance discovery on T&M research grounds has led to the introduction of this spectacular NEW true orientale poppy. Large vibrant flowers, often 5in. across of an intense and vivid coral pink never seen before in true orientale poppies from seed and rarely matched in the entire flower kingdom. Unlike many orientale poppies available, because it has been bred from seed it has consistent vigour, with many flowers over a long flowering period. Also it is not prone to 'flopping over' a fault with many varieties of this type of poppy. It is a long lived perennial making large plants within 3 years. From a late Autumn sowing it will flower in its first summer, coming true from seed. In a mixed orientale poppy trial the bees had apparently been very active as a red flowered hybrid produced several plants of this vivid pink. T&M's breeders got busy and... Coral Reef was born!

Cardiocrinum giganteum

Giant Lily, Lilium giganteum

This astonishing hardy perennial makes a fascinating talking point. The tall stems of the Giant Himalayan Lily tower to 2.5m (98") or more in an awe-inspiring display. With maturity Cardicrinum giganteum is topped with a crown of white Lily-like blooms from June the July. The trumpet shaped flowers have a powerful fragrance, attracting plenty of pollinating insects, before they are replaced by interesting oblong seedpods in late summer. The Giant Himalayan Lily may take 3 or more years to flower but is well worth the wait.

This fascinating plant is monocarpic, meaning that it dies after flowering - but don't be put off, it leaves behind offsets that will flower in 3 to 5 years time. Cardiocrinum giganteum is a most unusual plant that will add a real focal point to lightly shaded exotic gardens and woodland borders. Height: 250 cm (98"). Spread: 45cm (18").
