Perennial flowers are fabulous additions to New England gardens. As opposed to Annuals which live only 1 season, perennials come back year after year, some for more than 10 or 15 years - and even a hundred years like peonies! When carefully selected, wave after wave of colorful blooms will be enjoyed in your Northeast garden from spring to fall. Reliable plants, they come back stronger and bigger when winter turns to spring, ready to start another spectacular show.
Many gardens are at their best in spring and summer, but attention should also be given to their fall display as well. There are many spectacular late-flowering perennials that have the potential to revive your garden in the fall and extend color and joy in your landscape.
