Colourful perennials

Reply from Jason Lock

Designing with plants particularly with perennials opens up a wide pallete of colour for all seasons. I assume that you mean you are looking for a mix or perennials which provide seasonal interest oppoesed to one plant which will give that interest?

Assuming the latter I can offer the following as a few suggestions but there are many more but not enough time!:

January/February
Hellebores
Pulmonaria

March
Hellebores
Primulas
Pulmonaria
Euphorbia
Bergenia
Cordyallis

April
Bergenia
Hellebores
Iberis
lamium
Pulmonaria
Aubretia
Phlox
Veronica
Viola

May
Convillaria
Dicentra
Iris
Polygonatum
Caltha
Epimedium
Euphorbia
Trollius
Aquilegia

June/July
Geraniums
Nepeta
Acanthus
Gaura

July/August
Achillea
Agapanthus
Hemerocalls
Heuchera

September/October
Anemone
Rudbeckia
Sedum

November/December
Hellebores

Hi Jason, Many thanks for the comprehensive answer! I am actually wondering if there is one plant that is colourful all year round?
