Discover affordable perennial plants and flowers here at Dobies. Perennial plants live for two or more years, so after planting sit back and enjoy brightly coloured blooms for year after year. They'll die back during winter but when spring rolls around you’ll be treated to bigger, more beautiful plants than the previous year. Perennial plants are a gardener’s dream! Want something you can plant out immediately? Check out our range of bare root plants to create your garden display.
We’ve picked out some of the best perennial plants for adding a splash of colour and a touch of something different to your outside space:
Let’s start with an absolute showstopper. The Agastache is available as seeds, plug plants, and as a potted plant. A quick and easy way to liven up your borders with something different, this is one of our best border perennial plants for creating the ‘wow’ factor! Loved by bees and butterflies, it’s a great way to look after the nation’s bees and pollinators, and it produces flowers well into the autumn.
If you don’t have any bright sunny yellows in your garden yet, this one’s all about bringing the sunshine to your patio. Helenium ‘Short n’ Sassy’ offers golden petals huddled around chocolate-coloured cones, and is available as plugs or potted plants. Providing hundreds of flowers throughout the summer (and into autumn), it also makes an excellent cut flower. A great plant for pollinators and humans alike.
It’s the perfect time of year to add a touch of the tropical to your outside space, and our new range of Canna plants makes it easy. Take the ‘Cannova Bronze Orange’ for example…with dark orange petals that quietly blaze throughout the summer, this 2 litre potted perennial adds a touch of the holiday feel to any garden. We especially love this one for urban gardens – its long stems, dazzling flowers and compact size make it a good choice for those of you with less space.
