Hardy perennials are the mainstay of the herbaceous border, giving colour through the year for very litte effort and attracting bees and butterflies into the garden.
Syn. grandiflorum x alpinum. Deciduous spreading perennial producing dainty red and yellow flowers in spring.
Spreading perennial, with masses of dainty pink flowers in spring, over green-brown foliage.
An ancient plant forming spreading clumps of stiffly upright narrow green stems with dark bands. Its spreading nature can be controlled by growing in a container. Grow in shallow water up to about 4 inches deep.
The evergreen rosettes of spiny leaves are an attractive feature in themselves. Spikes of greenish flowers tower above the leaves in summer. Needs well-drained soil and full sun. Drought tolerant. A great plant for pollinators.
Spectacular bulbous plant with white flowers on huge pineapple-like, 1.5ft flower heads in late summer, followed by black seed pods. Grow in very well drained soil in full sun. Hardy to -10°C. Mulch in winter.
A tall perennial with variegated leaves and umbels of purple-pink flowers in late summer. Very good for bees and butterflies.
Evergreen perennial with tall spikes of dark-veined pale pink flowers in summer. Often used in bouquets. A good bee plant.
Flowering from August to October, this has masses of pale mauve flowers on tall stems. For sun and well-drained soil, lovely with grasses and Crocosmias.
An excellent hardy geranium with mounds of lush green foliage topped by large mauve-pink flowers with darker veining from May to July.
Similar to G. magnificum but longer flowering. This is a great plant for filling out a border or softening the edge with its thick, downy foliage. Purple-blue flowers May-July. Fairly drought tolerant once established.
