Perennials

What is a perennial?

A perennial is a plant that comes back year after year.  Many perennials will begin displaying visible growth in the early spring when temperatures begin to rise.  Depending on the plant it may bloom in the winter, spring, summer, or fall.  Many perennials bloom for extended periods of time.  There are evergreen perennials and perennials that die back after blooming.  Perennials grow from the same root system season after season.  Once established, perennials need little maintenance.  Perennials are a great choice for any landscape. 

June is Perennial Gardening Month.

Don't let the summer heat stop you from planting.  June is a great time to plant perennials with a wide selection of blooming plants to choose from.  Perennials are plants and flowers that come back year after year.  They work great in any landscape.  Perennials can be planted with other perennials, alongside annuals and bulbs, and as accents to trees and shrubs.  There are perennials for hot full sun areas and perennials for deeply shaded areas. Just remember to put the plant in a location that best suits it.  (Read plant tags carefully.)
