Perennials are a hugely important group of garden plants and can be used in containers, with shrubs or in a dedicated perennial - herbaceous - border or bed.
There are perennials available for most garden positions or situations. This list should give you a starting point if you are new to perennials - or simply give you a reminder if experienced.
They are becoming more popular as garden centres see the benefits of being able to sell small plants in flower at almost any time of the year!
