Perennials are those plants in your garden that come back every year, such as Coneflowers, Ornamental Grasses, Hostas and Asters…even Hardy Mums! They require little more than food, water, a little mulch and cutting back at the end of their particular season, which is great if you want a landscape that looks great with little effort.
One of the fun things about perennials is they “come into their own” at different times of the season. For example, Peonies bloom with beautiful color in the late spring while Phlox and Daylilies will brighten your landscape often throughout the summer. For fall color, what garden would be complete without Mums and Asters? Ornamental grasses are a great choice if you are looking for 4-season interest in your garden. (Note: Ornamental Grasses come in both annual and perennial varieties; be sure to check when purchasing.) With some planning and some research, your garden could be a cascade of color and interest all season long.
Flowerland carries many varieties of perennials. The following photos are a glimpse of what is available.
