Enjoy These 9 Perennial Plants And Flowers In Your Garden

9 perennial plants and flowers in your garden

Dreaming of a multi-tiered, lush garden? Plan your garden to include perennial flowers and plants. Perennials are long-game and cost-effective, as opposed to the instant gratification that superlative annuals provide. Once the perennial flowers and foliage are established you will have a low-maintenance landscape. The choices can be confusing if you're new to gardening. However, we're here for you with our list of 25 amazing perennials, including flowers that bloom in spring, summer, fall, and yes, winter.

1. Daylily

Daylilies require 4-6 hours of direct sunlight each day, so they should be planted in full sun or soft shade. Although daylilies need full light, they will occasionally bloom in the shade of large trees.

2. Amsonia

Although in partial shade in most homes and in rich organic soil with good moisture retention, it is once the drought is tolerant and thrives in full sun and well-drained soil.

3. Salvia

Some salvias bloom well in some shade, but most prefer full sun and well-drained soil. Once planted, most salvia species are drought-tolerant and do not require much maintenance.

4. Sedum

While most salvias prefer full sun and well-drained soil, some will still bloom in partial shade. Once established, most salvia species are drought-tolerant and low maintenance.

5. Black-Eyed Susan

Full light is best for growing black-eyed Susans (at least 6 to 8 hours per day). Although they can take a bit of shade, you'll eventually notice them grow and spread out towards the sun.

6. Lavender

Although they may welcome afternoon shade in warmer climates, lavenders require full sun. Plants are drought tolerant as they grow, although they flower best if moisture is prevented from drying out.

7. Asters

Asters thrive best in full light. While some varieties tolerate some shade, they produce fewer flowers. Asters thrive in loamy, well-drained soil.

8. Baptisia

Baptistia needs at least six hours of direct sunlight for vigorous, healthy growth. Keep them compact, produce flowers, and plant them in a sunny location.

9. Catmint

Catmint needs at least six hours of direct sunlight each day to flower optimally. Once all threats of frost have passed, plant catnip in the garden in the cooler spring or fall months.
