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.

A carpet of shiny, deep green leaves brushed with bronze provides wonderful contrast for the rose-pink flowers which begin to appear in early summer. The leaves are not deeply cut; rather they are relatively wide with rounded lobes which compliment the rounded shape of the flower petals. Standing only 4 inches tall, this cultivar acts as a weed-smothering groundcover in the garden.

Picture of Origanum Bellissimo

Bred as a hardy hot and dry tolerant ornamental plant, Origanum ‘Bellissimo’ is distinctively different. The aromatic foliage spreads and trails producing deep plum coloured bracts which intensify in colour from late spring throughout summer. Because bracts are responsible for the colourful display means these lovely ground cover plants will retain their showy display right into the Autumn.

Origanum ‘Bellissimo’ is extremely tolerant of hot and dry situations therefore lending itself well to ground cover use or in pots or as a showy weeping enhancement to trail over walls and embankments
