Perennial plants for containers

Growing perennials in containers can be a great choice if you're short on space or have mainly paved areas that you're looking to soften and brighten up. We've taken the hard work out of searching for perennials for growing in pots by compiling a suitable collection for you, spanning a mix of flower colours, sizes and growth habits (you can use the Product Filters below to narrow your search). These are perfect for adding a splash of colour and interest to your outdoor space. By their nature, perennials will survive through the frost and live in the ground for more than 2 years, so they'll provide beautiful flowers and exquisite scents for years to come.

Perennials are distinct from shrubs and trees because they have little or no woody growth. Herbaceous perennials are those perennials which, depending on the local climate, may bloom over the spring and summer, die back in the autumn and winter then re-grow from their root-stock in the spring. In contrast, evergreen perennials retain their foliage all-year round. They're great for adding colour and texture each summer with popular varieties for containers including Achillea, Agapanthus, Asters, Geum and Heuchera.
