While Woottens offer a wide range of perennials, many usefully listed according to whether they are sun-or shade-loving, they are particularly strong on auriculas, hemerocallis, irises and pelargoniums.
In recent years the auriculas have come back into popularity as many new and rediscovered hybrids have begun to circulate around plant sales and specialist nurseries - they are not all guaranteed to be hardy in our climate and may need cool, alpine house conditions but are worthy of a place - the Victorians made special displays in auricula cases that provided overhead protection from rain and wind but were open-fronted for viewing - you may see these occasionally in restored older gardens - the National Trust property at Caulke Abbey has a fine example.
