Perennial has launched a new Chelsea Plant Collection to celebrate taking part in the 2014 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Garden designer Jo Thompson has selected five hardy perennials from the Great Pavilion exhibit she designed for Perennial, giving a flavour of her Chelsea planting scheme to try at home.

The collection is available to buy online, thanks to a new partnership between Perennial and Coblands Nurseries.

Coblands has also supplied many of the plants for the Chelsea exhibit.

The Perennial exhibit at the Chelsea Flower Show marks the 175th anniversary of the charity, which has a £175,000 fundraising campaign this year to mark 175 years.

The two litre plants cost £41 for the collection and are:

  • Anthriscus sylvestris ‘Ravenswing’
  • Artemisia ‘Powis Castle’
  • Salvia nemorosa ‘Caradonna’
  • Astrantia major ‘Roma’
  • Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’
