Welcome to the Norfolk Cottage Garden Seeds & Plants Shop This is an alphabetical listing of the Perennials cottage garden plants you selected.


 
IMPORTANT NOTE:
At times, especially during the summer, plants may be cut back or pinched out if they are too far advanced to ship whole. This encourages annuals and biennials to produce extra flowering stems, so no bad thing! Perennials will establish well for next year, but may or may not flower this year, depending on species. In some instances top growth may be woody or sparce (e.g. Anthemis tinctoria), but don't worry, the plants are perfectly healthy and will soon produce fresh foliage! Please contact me if you would like to enquire about specific plants.

Stokesia laevis NCG 219 Stokesia laevis
Stokes Aster, Cornflower Aster

Sorry - currently unavailable

The clear lilac blooms of this plant resemble a delicate cornflower, but this is altogether a far superior plant, in my estimation. Not only is it very drought-tolerant, but is lightly scented, makes a good cut flower, attracts all manner of wildlife and will flower through to the first frosts.…
