Border perennial plants
Our collection of border perennials are perfect for creating a crescendo of colour in your flower beds or mixed borders. They can be incorporated into complete planting schemes or used to fill unsightly gaps in your existing borders in a cost-effective way. Use lower-growing varieties for the front of the border and taller growing perennials for the back of the border. This way the smaller growers will stay in the limelight whilst the taller perennials act as a showy backdrop, towering over smaller perennials, shrubs or bulbs. You can use our Product Filters to narrow your search by height, as well as soil type, aspect, flower colour and other features.
You may also want to think about staggering the time of year when different plants are at their most showy, perhaps with a mix of spring, summer, autumn and winter interest plants to provide balance through the year. Evergreen perennials retain their foliage all-year round, whilst herbaceous perennials die back in the autumn and winter then re-grow from their root-stock in the spring. You'll probably want to stake tall-growing perennials in the spring to support their extensive growth later in the season and prevent the wind from toppling them over. At Jackson's, we have a wide range of border perennials for delivery to anywhere in the UK, including some of our favourites like Achillea, Crocosmia, Delphinium, Foxglove, Echinacea and Geraniums.
