How Perennials Enhance Any Garden

 
 
Perennials grow in every hardiness zone, in every soil type and reach heights anywhere from a few inches to several feet. With so many varieties to choose from, it might be difficult to know where to begin. One thing to remember is that perennials are a garden's anchor. These plants reemerge every year. They hold your garden together, whether they act as border plants, specimens or textural elements. Choose the plants that brighten your day or the ones that set your garden's tone. Here are a few examples to get you started.

First to Emerge

Perennial plants and flowers are typically the first to emerge when the weather begins to warm up. These plants begin to break through the cool soil, set buds and provide bees and other pollinators with their first springtime meal. Bluebells, bleeding hearts, Siberian bugloss, salvia and other plants begin to blossom long before annual plants and flowers leave the greenhouse.

For gardeners, perennials are a pleasant reminder that spring is on its way. Far more pleasant is that perennials are planted during the spring so gardeners merely have to sit back and watch these plants emerge without having to get their hands dirty.

Winter Interest

Herbaceous perennials die back only to reemerge in spring. Asters, daylilies and delphiniums are only a few of the many colorful, herbaceous perennials found in gardens. Perennials that don't die back in cold temperatures will continue to provide gardens with silhouettes, textures and even color throughout the long, gray days of winter. Plants like evergreen ferns display autumnal colors despite snow and ice. Some bergenias' thick leaves turn a deep ebony during the winter months. Winterberry offers bright red fruit to birds, wildlife and photographers. The extremely hardy Helleborus varieties bloom in either December or March.

With enough research and planning, you can create a perennial garden that is always in bloom regardless of the season.
