Gardening in montane climate (Alps, Pyrenees, Massif Central, Vosges) requires choosing perennials that can withstand snow and cold, long winters but also a relatively short beautiful season. Mountain plants do not like heatwaves, as nights are cooler in the mountains than in the plains and summer storms are more frequent there.  Like ColumbinesRock Cress, Thrift, Edelweiss, the alpine aster and the Alpine Sea Holly (Eryngium), the Mountain Cornflower, gentians and some monkshoods, montane flora is rich in perennial species and varieties that can be planted without hesitation in this type of garden. Let's also mention Pasque flowers and Houseleeks for rockeries, Liverworts and Lily of the Valley in woodland. Hellebores and Chinese peonies are also very robust plants that thrive well up to medium mountains. Growing in often rocky soils, montane perennials generally require good drainage. Find our selection here!
