Herbaceous perennials means that the plant has non-woody stems that reach their full height and produce flower within one year. This happens before dying back over the winter but whose roots remain alive and reappear in the spring ready for a repeat performance.
Herbaceous perennials are often the mainstay of garden borders, they flower each year and help to create structure of the gardens appearance, so their placement must be considered carefully. They are usually planted in a wide border or bed and often arranged in size order, with towering blooms at the back and smaller plants at the front. This prevents the taller plants from obscuring smaller ones and robbing them of much needed sunlight; it also forms an attractive tier effect. Herbaceous perennials can also be planted in mixed borders, so plants flower at different times of the year.
We stock a huge variety of herbaceous perennials some of our most popular are Delphinium, Lupin, Aquilegia, Heuchera and Astilbe.
