Growing Herbaceous Perennials

As with most of our perennial collections, these tend to be hardy characters that will thrive in moist, well-drained soil preferably in sun to full shade.

In Your Garden Design

The colour pink is ideal for romantic cottage gardens. Like white, paler hues can also make a garden appear larger than it is. Offset cooler shades such as blues and whites and you have something infinitely soothing, or use richer hues to make something more intense, as Monty Don has done in his "jewel garden" section at Longmeadow, which has no white plants. To give extra zing add crocosmia, dahlias like orange pekoe and brown sugar and combine with Zebedee-esque zinnia.

Did You Know?

The word pink wasn't assigned to the colour until the 17th century, hopping over from the flower Pinks, or Dianthus, and becoming fashionable in art and literature. Previously, the closest word for "that blushing flesh colour" was incarnate (see below). Dianthus petals are edible and wonderfully decorative in food, crystallised, floating in cocktails, garnishing cakes or used to dress salads.

It is said that it was Madame de Pompadour's favourite colour, and her affection for it was sealed in Rose Pompadour porcelain dye, the recipe for which has been lost. Pink's designation as a girl's colour is a venerable tradition, but one that depends on denomination: until the 1940s, it was not uncommon for Catholics in many areas to use blue, the colour associated with the Virgin Mary, for girls and pink for boys. There was not really a big swap from one tradition to the other, so much as baby clothes production increasingly centralised around businesses owned by non-Catholics.
