Perennial Ground Cover Collection - 12 Powerliner plug plants - 2 of each variety

Our ground cover collection of hardy herbaceous perennials brings so many benefits, which all lead to one thing: low maintenance gardening. We've selected some of our best low-growing perennials to offer a range of planting solutions. Use them as front of border plants in large sunny borders or set them in dappled shade as underplanting to trees and shrubs. You can even try them in pots and use your new perennial containers alongside seasonal pots. Every plant in the mix offers a controlled spreading habit, helping to quickly fill borders, cover soils and prevent weeds taking hold. And less weeding leads to more time spent enjoying your garden!
