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.
Cirsium rivulare 'Atropurpureum'
Clump-forming perennial with erect stems carrying deep red/maroon thistle-like flowers to 3cm across, from early to mid-summer. Makes a bold statement in the border.
A tall cultivar with large bright yellow daisies to 3in across from early to midsummer. For well drained soil in full sun.
