A great choice for an ornamental ground cover plant, Roseum tolerates most soil types and, is shallow-rooted so easy to control if it attempts to spread into other areas. It can bloom as early as March and in ideal conditions may flower for most of the summer, much to the delight of the local bees!
Wild bees and other pollinators are in decline. This plant is recommended specifically by the RHS as part of the RHS plants for pollinators scheme. This scheme helps gardeners to easily identify plants that encourage bees and pollinators back into the garden.
Perennials are plants that live for more than 2 years, generally flowering annually and dying back during the winter. Our range has been specially selected to help you create colourful displays in your garden which will attract and benefit insects such as butterflies and bees. Choosing a variety of plants that flower at different times will help to ensure your garden looks beautiful and sustains the wildlife across the seasons.
Our plants may be delivered in an infant or dormant state but once exposed to sunlight, they will resume growing. We also recommend using a fertiliser or soil conditioner when repotting or relocating into the garden to help them establish quickly.
