September plant of the moment
Flowers are always a wonderful addition to the garden but there are other ways of bringing interest to your borders with plants such as Echinacea and Rudbeckia which develop beautiful seed heads that can last into the autumn. Look out for other plant varieties too such as glorious agapanthus with its purple blooms and the feathery sways of ornamental grasses which bring texture to your displays.
Visit your local Homebase store for our full range of late flowering perrenials or browse online, now.
- As you plan your borders, select plants that will bring colour and interest throughout the year so there is always something lovely to enjoy.
- Try grouping plants of the same variety together, it can give more impact than just one plant on its own.
- If you have a verbena or two in your garden, leave the old flowers on the plant and they will scatter seeds which will then flourish in upcoming years.
There are lots of plants that work well with your late flowering perrenials and the following will be particularly successful:
- Cranesbill (Hardy Geranium)
- Ornamental Grasses
- Miscanthus varieties
- Monk’s hood
