Our Feedback
Ordered 60 Pearlwort plugs in mid-July as a low maintenance alternative to grass. Packaging and protection was excellent and plugs were in superb condition. I split each plug into 4 and planted directly into the soil which had been well prepared beforehand. The somewhat warmer summer meant more frequent watering to ensure the plugs settled into place. By next summer I anticipate the soil between the stepping stones in the garden to be completely filled with pearlwort. It is planted in direct sun and deeply shaded areas but all are growing and spreading well. Most of the plugs flowered and the spread has been quite amazing. Because of the layout, a lawnmower or strimmer would not fit so an alternative had to be found. Victoriana Nursery provided the perfect solution - a low maintenance grass alternative which also produces small white flowers. Everyone who sees it loves the look and the idea of no real maintenance. Victoriana Nursery has a range of unusual plants so I will definitely be after future purchases and spreading the word to those who are curious or are 'green fingered'. Great value for money. Keep the area weed free as the plants spread and weeds will be a thing of the past.

Description

This is the plant for open borders or partial shade beneath trees where dappled sunlight can filter through. We have offered this reliable variety since the early 1960s - so easily grown, and so majestic with its towering spikes of bloom.

A lovely colour selection including pinks, purples, creams and whites - as well with spotted and marked trumpet flowers.

Perfect for the cottage garden, more formal border or even the wild flower meadow.

Recognised to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Hardy biennial - though will readily self seed (hence why we include them in perennials).
  • Flowers late May - early August.
  • Grows to approximately 5-6 feet (1.5-1.8 metres) tall.
  • Thrives in full sun or partial shade and a deep rich soil.
  • Will also perform well in full sun though flowering period will be reduced.
  • Plant approximately 12-18" (30-45 cm) apart.
