Delosperma are without a doubt a Hayloft favourite. They produce masses of neon-coloured blooms which start from spring and continue all the way until the first frosts. Not only that, but they can withstand the toughest environments and still manage to look incredible.
Penstemons are incredibly popular and it's easy to see why, as they have an unbelievably long flowering period and are so easy to grow, trouble-free and pest resistant. They are so popular in fact, that there is even an international Penstemon society whose members call themselves Penstemaniacs!
Aptly named red-hot pokers, the stately and architectural Kniphofia are a spectacular choice for your autumn garden, with unmistakable exotic-looking spikes of blooms. The perfect plant for adding some drama to your borders and their long-lived nature makes them such a rewarding perennial to grow.
Bang on trend, succulents are all the rage, offering colourful foliage and clusters of nectar-rich blooms perfect for attracting bees and butterflies. The blooms last well into autumn and even winter, helping you avoid those 'gappy' autumnal borders.
Asters burst into life in the last days of summer and don't stop until late November, producing a frenzy of daisy-like flowers that will light up your garden just when you thought the season was coming to an end.
A cross between an Amaryllis and a Nerine, sprays of up to ten elegant lily-like flowers appear on tall, upright stems. An excellent flower for cutting as they last so long and look absolutely stunning in the home.
These Colchicums may be small in size but they sure do make an impact from autumn to spring, giving a pop of colour. Hardy and durable, they're such an easy plant to grow so you can have beautiful autumn colour in your garden with minimal effort and maintenance.
