Available in an unlimited array of styles and colors, Perennials are found in almost every yard. Most are long lived, providing color to the landscape year after year. There are so many ways to use these beauties: in whole garden beds, in combination with annuals and ornamental grasses, as a contrast to trees and shrubs, in pots or in window boxes, or for a bright spot of color. Long blooming perennials, such as Black Eyed Susan or Geranium, are extra stunning when planted in mass. A group of butterfly attracting flowers will bring color and beneficial insects to the yard. Hosta and Coral Bells will brighten shady areas. Daylily and Russian Sage are very easy to grow and are often found thriving in poor soils.
