Flowers displaying for many months
A lovely collection of plants with a mainly purple theme that will produce a flowering display for many months.
We have put together this delightful collection of plants to provide you with a complimenting and tranquil display of flowers for many months in your garden, which planted together will provide months and months of flowers and form over 1m sq. of beauty and leave little room for any weeds to appear or areas of soil. The flowering period will start in early spring from the well established collection of 9 Armeria, across 3 different colours which when planted at the front of the display will produce a lovely display of ball-shaped flowers. Just when this is in full swing the 3 Erysimums should start to flower. This lovely and very popular variety will produce a great display of mauve coloured flowers from mid spring onwards and it will continue to produce flowers all spring, summer and often into autumn. As soon as summer comes the Verbena at the back of the display will have grown tall and be starting to show off the lovely tufts of purple flowers on top of the tall stems which move gracefully in the wind. In total its 15 wonderful plants including best sellers and customer favourites, put together in one collection with the idea of planting together and creating a lovely display which will be full and packed with flowers all spring and summer.
A total of 15 plants (3 of each variety) supplied as potted plants.
