Hardy perennials, sometimes called herbaceous perennials, are plants which can survive in open ground all year. Autumn is an excellent time for planting hardy perennials ready for next spring. During Winter the visible part of the plant dies back, and can be cut back to tidy the bed, but this does not indicate that the entire plant has died. In fact, they only die back to a rootstock where next year’s shoots are protected; these protected shoots are the basis for the magical growth that appears when conditions permit.
