This selection of choice perennials embraces the latest Ombre colour trend. Soft gradients of the same hue – from bright purple to plum - give a seamlessly blended look which is lifted by contrasting scarlet geums. This subtle palette establishes a garden theme in borders or containers, giving the eye a soft progression which is instantly stylish.

Comprises each of the following varieties:

  • Geum 'Samba Sunset' - 3cm plug: A spectacular result of the latest breeding, with enormous, double flowers, twice the size of traditional varieties, borne in profusion throughout the summer. The bright scarlet blooms rise on slender stems above a mound of fresh, green foliage. Height: 60cm (24”). Spread: 45cm (18”).
  • Osteospermum ‘Tresco Purple’ (Hardy) - 4cm Plug: Bold pink daisy flowers open every morning to greet the sun. Versatile and resilient, this hardy Osteospermum will thrive in hot, dry, neglected conditions and yet is one of the longest-flowering plants in the garden! Expect vibrant summer colour and weed suppressing ground cover from this easy to grow, sun loving African Daisy. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 90cm (36").
  • Penstemon 'Strawberries & Cream' 3.5cm Plug: This popular hardy perennial deserves a prime spot in the garden. White trumpet shaped flowers with delicately speckled throats appear in summer above a flush of glossy, semi-evergreen foliage. The long-lasting blooms continue well into autumn, long after other plants have run out of steam. Height: 80cm (31"). Spread: 45cm (18").
  • Osteospermum ‘Snow Pixie’ (Hardy) 4cm Plug: A perfect contrast to its purple-pink coloured cousins, sporting clean, white petals with a golden yellow eye. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 90cm (36").
  • Penstemon 'Blackberry' 3.5cm Plug : Satin, bell-shaped flowers in a rich shade of purple smother the upright stems of this hardy perennial. Undemanding and easy to grow, tolerating almost any position in the garden, regardless of rain or drought, and even resisting slug damage! Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 40cm (16").
  • Cosmos 'Chocamocha' 5cm Plug : A 'must have' plant for gardening chocoholics! You'll be amazed by the luxurious, velvety blooms in rich cocoa shades that even smell of chocolate. 'Chocamocha' is particularly compact and much shorter than other cultivars, so it won't require staking. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Pot up plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until all risk of frost has passed. When plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before transplanting into borders and containers. The herbaceous perennials in this collection can be grown in any moist, fertile soil, in sun or semi shade. Work some compost or general fertiliser into the top 20cm of the soil prior to planting. Please see individual varieties for more information.
In autumn, cut back the old foliage to ground level and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plants. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of perennials in autumn to maintain their vigour. Cosmos ‘Chocamocha’ is a half hardy perennial but can easily be over-wintered when grown in containers and kept in frost free conditions.
