December Flowers and Christmas Greetings from Downside Nurseries

Herbaceous Plants

H Cirsium rivulare Atropurpureum 026
Hardy Herbaceous Perennials at Wiltshire's Downside Nurseries. Grasses and iris 961

These hardy varied and versatile plants are our speciality.  We stock over 800 varieties from old favourites to the latest introductions and are always on the lookout for new and interesting plants to add to our range.

Herbaceous means that the plant has non-woody stems that reach their full height and produce flowers within one year, before dying back over the winter and then reappearing the following spring. Herbaceous perennials will go on to live for many years.

They are available all year round and we are continually replenishing our stock. The widest choice is available in April and May. These include many of your favourites such as salvia, penstemon, heuchera, euphorbia, hellebores and well-established specimen sizes of lupins and delphiniums.
We have a separate section for Bamboo, Ferns and Grasses, please see here.


Our herbaceous plants are generally found in the second tunnel, Bays 12-16
