Perennials are plants that regrow every spring, they don’t bloom as long as annuals but do not need to be replaced every year. When deciding what to chose for your garden, we recommend picking a mix of plants with different bloom periods so there is always a point of interest in the garden. Here is a list of perennials that will bring summer interest.
