Perennial plants differ from annuals not only in the fact that they are winter hardy and will come back each year, but in the fact that typically many perennials bloom during a portion of the season rather than all season long. So, in addition to flower color and plant height, another dimension (fun) to designing a perennial flower bed is to incorporate plants that bloom during various times of the season i.e. early season, midseason, late season.
A well-designed perennial garden can provide many years of beauty and enjoyment. Careful selection of plant materials and thoughtful planning can result in a full season of color.
July is a great month for mid-season perennial color. And late-season bloomers begin in August. Many plants are in flower now or getting ready to flower! Keep your eyes open around your neighborhood landscape for what you like. The list of possible perennial plants is long.

To be sure you have the very best perennial flowers available, the Green Team passionately searches through the regional flower trial gardens and scours the flower and plant catalogs to find the very best performing varieties for your garden. As a result of new flower breeding, many perennials have an extended bloom time or will re-bloom later in the season. We are always on the lookout for these varieties so that you may enjoy them for a longer period of time in your garden.
