Steeped in fruity, sweet, floral fresh notes, this glorious combination of fragrant plants will provide colour and perfume from spring to autumn. First comes the lily-of-the-valley and spring-flowering phlox divaricata. They hand the perfume baton to the dianthus and nemesia, and then on they pass it to the late summer flowering phlox and actaea. These not only all smell glorious, they are beautiful and fit well together too.This collection contains 3 x 9cm pots each of:
- Dianthus 'Mrs Sinkins'
- Convallaria majalis (Lily of the Valley)
- Nemesia denticulata 'Confetti'
- Phlox divaricata 'Clouds of Perfume'
- Phlox paniculata 'David'
- Actaea simplex (Atropurpurea Group) 'Brunette'
After planting, water generously for 1-2 weeks so the plants get well established.
