Garden centres still have perennials in 9 cm pots James. a large range.  They grow very fast now if you pot them up a couple of times.  They will make large flowering plants by early summer.

Planted out convolvulous cneorum as part of a revamped part of sunny, well drained border, (pennisetum rubrum will be planted behind in late April) weeded, planted potted primroses and potted anemone blanda. Lovely day......should have taken a photo to show it.

They are more like ANNUALS I'm afraid.  They do as annuals do....flower and flower and then struggle over the winter.  

Bowles Mauve is, by far, the longest flowering and hardiest variety but this too runs out of from cuttings every 2 years.
