Perennials - Just Arrived


In designing with plants, it is the perennials that ensure that there is constant change, and that there is always an element of surprise or interest in the garden.
Getting to know the dormant and flowering periods of the plants is essential to achieving the right balance in the design, so that as one perennial goes to sleep, another awakens.


Perennials, perhaps more than any other group of plants, are available in a huge range of colours, forms, textures and fragrances in both foliage and flower. There are perennials suitable for almost every area of the garden: from full sun to full shade, in large gardens or small beds and to suit every mood or style. Popular perennial plants include Penstemon, Gaura, Canna, Dahlias, Salvias, Lupins, Columbines, Lilies, Delphiniums and Hellebores - oh! the list is endless.

Winter Rose double. These delightful doubles are from Clifton Homestead - a Hellebore specialist from the deep South. The exquisite blooms are round and facing outwards on sturdy stems. Available in white and various shades of pink. Happy in semi-shade in humus rich soil that is well drained. Perennial.

Hellebore foliage is mostly evergreen but the old leaves start to look a bit tatty after awhile. It is usual to cut them off just as the flower buds start to appear.
