Perennials are plants or flowers that come back year after year. These types of plants are found in almost every yard. You can utilize perennial flowers in nearly every situation. From garden beds to accents for shrubbery to window boxes – perennials are versatile. Not only do perennials come back each year, they often return big and better than the previous year. Once your perennials are established on your property, they often require little maintenance and can handle dry spells easily. Many perennials have adapted to be able to survive in harsh climates and varying environmental conditions. Most perennials do not retain their foliage year round.
