Flower Guide for the
Plants M-P

A Flower Guide for your Perennial Container Garden awaits!!

Looking for the right combination of Perennials can sometimes be a little tricky. Every Perennial is different....and sometimes different in big ways.

You can't start a Container without first knowing a few things that make up those big differences. One thing, for example: What amount of sun does the plant require? We certainly can't combine a sun loving flower with one that thrives in the shade! Where would you put it? The sun or the shade? Either way, one of the plants won't survive.

Take ease. The guide below will eliminate some of the guess work in creating your work of art.
