Plant Types / Perennials
Perennial flowers and plants are a diverse group of plants that live for more than two years, returning year after year to provide color, texture, and interest to gardens and landscapes. With their long-lasting nature, perennials offer an enduring and low-maintenance solution for gardeners seeking to create a dynamic and evolving garden space.
- Perennials can be herbaceous, which means they have soft, non-woody stems or woody, like some shrubs and small trees.
- Perennial flowers grow and bloom over the spring and summer, die back during fall and winter, and return in the spring from their rootstock.
- They come in various shapes, sizes, and growth habits, from ground covers and grasses to flowering plants and shrubs.
- Perennial plants often become stronger and more established with each passing year, ultimately creating a more vibrant and resilient garden.
- When choosing perennial plants for your garden, consider climate, soil type, sun exposure, and available space. Select plants that are well-suited to your region and will thrive in your specific garden conditions.
- Some popular perennial plants include hostas, daylilies, black-eyed susans, peonies, lavender, and coneflowers. These plants are known for their hardiness, low maintenance, and stunning blooms, making them a favorite among gardeners of all levels.
By incorporating a variety of perennial plants into your garden design, you can create a dynamic, ever-changing landscape that requires less maintenance and provides ongoing beauty and interest throughout the seasons.
