    1. Delphinium

    Delphiniums are perfect for people who need tall plants to enhance the look of their garden. They can achieve heights over 6 feet, depending on which variety you go with. The taller delphinium varieties may need to be stalked so that they remain upright in the face of strong winds. They bloom in shades of blue, purple, and pink, which can enhance the colors of your garden. While delphiniums thrive in strong sunlight, they’re also great in shaded sections in your garden.

    • Rambling Roses

    These beautiful flowers can be grown for covering your garden structures. If you nurture them the right way, they can achieve heights of over 20 feet. Rambling roses grow in vibrant pink clusters and attract butterflies into your garden. These plants grow best under partial to full sunlight in well-drained conditions.

    • Peony

    These are flowers with unique blooms that provide a wonderful fragrance and a sense of elegance to a garden. Their bright pink blooms are known for attracting pollinators en masse to gardens. Peony grows best under full sunlight and well-drained soil conditions. Based on the plant variety, these plants can achieve a height of 5 feet, thus improving your English garden’s overall appearance.

    • Hollyhocks


    Hollyhocks blooms come in a wide spectrum of shades – from light shades of pink and yellow to dark shades of purple and red, which are ideal for attracting pollinators to visit your garden. They grow best in well-drained, moist soil conditions under strong sunlight. Based on the variety, their height ranges between 4-8 feet.

    • Lavender

    Lavender is the quintessential English garden plant. It’s an amazing ornamental herb, which you can use for filling up the spaces present between other plants. They grow best in well-drained soil under full sunlight conditions and can grow to heights of over 2 feet when nurtured with care. They also have an incredibly sweet-smelling fragrance and can be used for making a lovely potpourri that enhances your home’s environment.  

    • Cottage Pinks

    These have fringed petals and scented spicy flowers, and are available in a number of non-traditional colors since new varieties keep getting introduced every once in a while. They are incredibly drought-resistant & their fragrance attracts butterflies and pollinators immensely. It is best to plant them near your garden’s borders, which can help you enjoy their fragrance more.

    • Peachleaf Bellflower

    These flowers stay in bloom through the summer. They also have an abundance of buds and long stems, which make it an ideal garden plant. Unlike other Campanula species, peach bellflowers don’t cause any nuisance due to rampant self-sowing. However, they do tend to grow in different spots in your garden every successive year.
