Why should you plant perennials?
Perennials come back every year, so you can plant them once and enjoy them for years to come. Some perennial flowers bloom for months. Other perennials attract pollinators, bees and butterflies. Others, like hosta and ornamental grasses, are grown for their foliage.
When choosing perennials for your garden, ask yourself what you want them to do. Do you want blooms all summer long? Want a ground cover? Want pops of brilliant color? Select perennial flowers that are suited for your grow zones. Also pay attention to their light requirements, height and spread, and bloom times.
