Perennial Flowering Plants Add Color To Your Garden From Spring To Autumn Year After Year!

Most gardeners have some form of perennial plants growing somewhere in their garden plot.

There are so many types of perennials that there is something for almost all climates and soil types.

You can find sun loving perennials or shade loving perennials, like the beautiful Bleeding Heart, depending on your garden needs.

For me it's the variety. Sun or heavy shade, tall or short, bright color or subtle leaf shades, rich loam or barely any soil at all, there is always a perennial to fit the bill. In fact they do say that wherever a weed will grow, so will a perennial flowers...it's just a matter of finding the right one!

Perennial Garden Plants Help To Attract Beneficial Insects

Perennial plants are a great addition to an organic garden. They help to attract beneficial insects, butterflies and other pollinators to the garden and their flowers offer nectar and pollen for honey bees and wild bees.

Most herbaceous plants are easy to grow and require little maintenance. Most of them are happy if they get a layer of compost and mulch once a year to meet their nutrient requirements. Dividing them every couple of years during the dormant time of the year helps to keep them healthy and vigorous with the added benefit of producing more plants for your garden.


What Are Perennials?

Perennial plants come back year after year unlike annuals that grow only for one season. They are also often called herbaceous plants. Most of them die down and are dormant during the winter months. They disappear under the ground and come back up in the spring.

Whether it's a climber such as a honeysuckle or Boston ivy, or a plant for cut flowers such as an Aster or Baby's Breath, the attraction has always been the repeat performance each year...the reliability.

Popular perennials for example are carnations, asters, rudbeckias, hostas, hardy geraniums or dahlias. They all add lots of color to your garden, don't need a lot of maintenance and are easy to grow. These are the plants I love!
