Although our focus is ornamental grasses, we have a resonable selection of autumn flowering hercaceous plants, which make excellent companions for them.
Chrysanthemum 'Mrs Jessie Cooper' is wonderful in the autumn garden.Many late summer and autumn flowering perennials prefer moist, but well drained soil.
If you are on free draining soil, you will need to incorporate organic matter and add mulch.
Aster amellus 'Rosa Erfullung'
Asters are returning to popularity and bring strong colours into the garden when the light levels begin to lessen in the autumn. Novae angliae [New England] asters are mildew resistant. On the other hand New York [Novae Belgiae] asters may be suseptible, but the mildew can be controlled relatively easily. We can give that advice.
Sedums are easy plants to manage. They are drought tolerate and stand well through the winter. Nowadays there is a wide selection available ranging from lower greeping plants to specimens 60cm in height.
