Perennials provide beautiful color in your garden year after year. Although there are literally thousands of varieties to choose from, here are three of our favorites for sun and three for shade that we feel every garden should have.
For Sunny Gardens
Trumpets of color welcome hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden. Many re-blooming varieties of daylily are available to provide color in the summer border over grass-like foliage.
Long blooming spires of blue, purple and white. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Mixes well with yellow and orange flowers in a sunny garden border.
Golden yellow petals with brown centers – a cottage garden essential!
For Shady Gardens
Provide a bold foliage display that comes in a vast array of sizes and colors. Can be used in drifts, as edging or as a focal point to brighten a shade garden.
Large feathery plumes from pure white to deep red over soft fern-like foliage. Attractive to butterflies, perfect for part sun to part shade gardens.
Colorful leaves that glow like stained glass in dappled sunlight add real color to the shade garden.
