Perennials assortment The Kate Blackburn Collection
At The Kate Blackburn Collection in Blandford Forum you'll find the best perennials in Dorset. Perennials bring a garden to life with movement, colour and scent: an ever-changing tapestry of beauty which marks the passing of the seasons and gives you something new to look at each time you go outside.
Technically a perennial is simply a plant which comes back every year. They don't have woody stems, like a shrub or tree: herbaceous perennials die right down, while evergreens like hellebores and bergenias keep a clump of leaves right through winter. Because they're seasonal you can really ring the changes if you choose carefully, giving your garden colour and interest all year round with perenials from The Kate Blackburn Collection.
Perennial performers from The Kate Blackburn Collection
Perennials are the mainstay of the plant benches at The Kate Blackburn Collection here in Blandford Forum and they search far and wide for top performers, including the best of the on-trend designer plants and old traditional favourites.
Long-flowering perennials never go out of fashion and offer fantastic value, often flowering their socks off for months on end. Every gardener's wish list should include desirable plants like ´Salvia 'Caradonna', with its summer-long cobalt-blue flower spikes, perennial wallflower Erysimum 'Bowles' Mauve', perfect for cottage gardens, or dainty Geranium 'Rozanne', recently voted RHS Plant of the Centenary and always in flower from June to October.
Buy perennials for every season at The Kate Blackburn Collection
Start your perennial display with spring beauties like pulmonarias, primulas, dainty-flowered Epimedium (great for shady corners) and the sweetly nodding flowers of aquilegias.
In summer you're spoilt for choice: highllights include sumptuous peony blooms and pretty heart-shaped dicentra flowers in early summer, a riot of hardy geraniums, dancing gaura and daisy-like echinaceas through midsummer, and late summer beauties like rich yellow rudbeckias, Japanese anemones and long-flowering asters to take you into autumn.
And it doesn't stop there: even in winter there are perennial beauties like the broad, deep purple leaves of Bergenia (topped with lipstick-pink flowers in spring) and demurely nodding hellebore flowers.
