Autumn Flowering Perennial Pack 2 (7 plants)
If your garden looks a bit sad in Autumn, from the end of September through to the end of October then you probably need to add some Autumn colour. No flowers now means no late night snacks for the pollinators who are desperately trying to fill themselves up with food before thier long Winter sleeep.
This is our second pack 2 for flowers now with additions.
You could add in some Autumn bulbs too (see Autumn Bulb Packs)
- Swedish Asters for the back of the border, tall, vibrant pink, long lasting multi-flowers on each stem (main product picture)
2. Verbena Rigida for mid-height deep purple flower clusters and dark green serrated feathery foliage (see gallery image)
3. Honeysuckle or lonicera “halliana” or ‘halls prolific’ for the back of the border, to climb with support along a fence or wall, very heavily scented yellow & white flowers from early summer, this is the closest honeysuckle we can find to the native woodland one, (see gallery image)
4. Aster novi-belgii a low growing, clump forming Aster with deep pink flowers (picture not included)So much smaller than other asters, this little darling brings cheerfulness to the autumn time – and importantly a food source for the pollinators.
5. Liriope muscari ‘alba’ a low growing, dense clump forming and shade tolerant ‘grass like’ perennial, with lovely long white flower stems (see gallery image).
6. Sedum spectabilis – huge flat flowers in Pink or White. This is a large plant and a member of the succulent family, it loves the sun and never fails to perform even when the heavy clay here is wet and soggy. They clump form quickly and are easy to divide too.
7. Ceratostigma Willmottianum: a small deciduous shrub with shockingly bright cobalt blue flowers, this has been one of our favourite shrubs in the Wishing well Garden just outside the office as it is visited every year without fail by Hummingbird Hawk Moths which are so amazing. A very large moth, they look like little birds. This plant is a magnet for moths and any other hungry pollinator in autumn time.
