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

    Add some fire to the borders with these two late flowering gems.

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

  • Inula helenium Throughout the summer this magnificent perennial produces brown-eyed, yellow daisies on tall stems, which tower over the border. An impressive plant - not just for its stature, but also for its ease of growth and sunny disposition, it will quickly fill gaps towards the back of the border, provided it has deep fertile soil and a reliable source of water. Grows to 1.8m.

  • Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Firetail' Long, slender spikes clustered with tiny, fluffy, crimson-red flowers rise from mid summer to early autumn above semi-evergreen, lance-shaped, mid-green leaves. This clump-forming, vigorous perennial has handsome foliage and quickly makes dense groundcover in sun or partial shade. Plant it in bold swathes to add vertical interest in the border right through to mid autumn and give it plenty of space. Persicaria does not like dry soil, so performs best in a bog garden or beside a pond. Bees and other insects love it too! 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.
