The plants in this collection will die right back in autumn, then fresh new growth will appear again in spring.

    Create an ethereal haze that will add colour and movement to the border in summer and early autum.

    In this collection you will receive three of each of the following varieties, each in a 9cm pot.

  • Gaura lindheimeri A graceful, hazy plant with airy spikes of white, star-shaped flowers with long anthers like daddy long-legs, held on slender stems from May to September. This exceptionally long-flowering perennial looks equally at home in an informal cottage-style garden or among soft grasses in a new perennial border. It is exceptionally drought-tolerant and will soak up the sun. Give it space, as its wispy stems will lean over plants and pathways. Grows to 1.5m.

  • Perovskia 'Blue Spire' With its aromatic leaves and upright spikes of violet-blue flowers, Russian sage makes a wonderful companion to all kinds of late-summer ornamental grasses and perennials. In August and September, tiny, violet-blue, tubular flowers appear on silver-grey spikes above the main framework of the plant, among deeply-cut and lobed, grey-green leaves. This deciduous sub-shrub makes a real impact planted en masse alongside a path, where the sage-like fragrance of its leaves can be appreciated, or try it alongside other silver-leaved plants, or in swathes in a sunny border. One of our recommended plants, it copes well with dry, chalky soil and salt-laden air. Grows to 1.2m.

  • Planting tips: Prepare the bed well by digging in lots of composted organic matter before you plant. For best results it is essential that the plants are kept well watered for the first year, particularly during warmer weather.

I would like to plant gaura and pereskovia together in a trough alongside the patio. What depth should the container be.

Nanny Plumb

There are no hard and fast answers I'm afraid, however I would aim for a pot with a minimum depth of 30cm or so.
