Our new Perennial Introductions
Fairweather's has an established reputation for introduction of new perennials to the market. Our range of 250+ cultivars of herbaceous, shrubs and climbers includes many exclusive lines plus some traditional favourites.
We work closely with breeders and their agents to ensure we add garden and production-worthy introductions to our range of wholesale plants.
Please download our availability list for details of new lines which have not yet been included in the latest catalogue. View our gallery of new perennial introductions below:
Achillea 'Vintage Violet'
A compact selection that has eye-catching plum-violet flowers. It flowers over a longer period than many Achillea.
Allium 'Lavender Bubbles'
Hybrid from sensecens. This is a perennial (not a bulb) variety. Foliage does not die back as it flowers. Very free flowering from June - September. Attracts bees.
Anemone 'Frilly Knickers'
This semi-double selection from 'Dreaming Swan' was made by Rosy Hardy of Hardy's Cottage Garden Plants. The pure white petals are suffused with pale lilac and finely frilled, surrounding a boss of deep golden yellow stamens.Flowers from July to late summer. 60cm x 45cm. 'Frilly Knickers' won the Visitors vote at the 2020 HTA Virtual New Plant Awards with over 30% of the votes.
Clusters of bright-pink flowers are produced on wiry stems. The flowers are sterile and so continue flowering over a long period from late spring into summer.
Echinacea 'Pretty Parasols'
Strong stems topped with a parasol shaped flowers. Flowers appear at slightly different heights giving a 'prairie' look to the garden.
Eryngium 'Lapis Blue'
Large steely-blue prickly flowers, which age to dark blue in summer over silvery grey foliage. Strong stems.
Geranium 'Azure Skies'
The finely-cut, lacy foliage forms an attractive loose perennial clump. Throughout summer this well-branched plant sends up stems of fully-double, sky-blue flowers.
Evergreen leaves emerge red with dark red centres early in spring, before lightening to bronze red. Each leaf is lobed, giving it a unique lacy texture in the garden. In the heat of summer, the leaves mellow to deep green. In late spring, cream, bottlebrush shaped flowers appear above the foliage. ‘Hopscotch’ is a H. villosa hybrid which means it has greater vigour than Heucherella without such parentage.
This decidous Nepeta has large blue flowers and compact habit. Very free flowering.
Salvia 'Caradonna Pink'
This stunning pink version of 'Cardonna' produces spikes of pink flowers that contrast dramatically with its black-purple stems.
Salvia 'Feathers Flamingo'
Feathers Flamingo' has deeply incised foliage that gives the plant an airy and elegant look. 'Flamingo' has soft pink flowers from June to August with a rebloom in autumn.
Senecio 'Angel Wings'
Evergreen, rounded, large silver leaves with a soft velvety feel. Grown as a foliage plant.
Thalictrum 'Little Pinkie'
Black Stockings emphasises its heigh with dark, almost ebony stems that compliment perfectly the ferny foliage and airy, flat topped clusters of delicate, lavender flowers that appear in late spring or early summer.
