Perennials are plants that come back year after year. Our perennial flowers and vines can provide your garden color, without having to replant every season. Some varieties will prosper and thrive for years in the garden or landscape when they have been planted under ideal conditions. Other varieties have a limited life expectancy, but will return for several years. They have roots that survive through the winter months, sending out new growth each spring. Appearing in your garden year after year, perennials become old friends.

Perennials come in many sizes, shapes and colors with various bloom times and periods. It is best to plan your garden by the plant bloom time along with the cultural needs (sun/shade and drought-tolerant/water-lovers).
There are a few standout shade-bloomers like Astilbe that offer striking splashes of color for weeks at a time. Still, there are literally thousands of sun-loving perennials to choose from, including Daylilies, Black Eyed Susan, Salvias, and many more.
As the name suggests, sun perennials require daily exposure to sunshine, optimally receiving at least six to eight hours per day. They’re easy to grow, making them an ideal choice for first-time gardeners. Since they love the sun, some are even drought-resistant, meaning you won’t need to water them daily. People who travel or work long hours may want to invest in these low-maintenance plants.
Do you love having fresh flowers around the house? You can cut sun perennials and put them in vases to brighten up your home. Plus, when you plant these flowers, you’ll also help the soil system in your yard, because their root growth helps to aerate the yard.
Whether you pick flowers, ornamental grasses, groundcovers or vines, you get plants that help you plan ahead for next year’s garden. You will already know where to expect the plants to return, so you can organize the rest of your purchases accordingly.
Shade perennials are essentially the opposite of sun perennials. They thrive without exposure to direct sunlight, which can burn their delicate flowers and stems. Instead, they should grow in shadier places, such as underneath a large tree or in an area where an overhang from the house or porch shields them from unfiltered sun.
Like sun perennials, shade perennials draw in nutrients from a wider area than annuals due to their strong roots. Known for their hardiness, shade groundcovers can help keep topsoil moist and thus protect your yard from erosion caused by wind that stirs up dry soil.
Shade perennials can add color to your yard all year long, because not all of them bloom at the same time. You may have some that open up during the spring and others that reach their peak in the fall. This will ensure your yard has visual interest no matter the season.
Finally, shade and sun perennials tend to stand up to bad weather well, meaning you won’t have to replant after a mild storm.
