Use our Flower Planting Guide to learn the best planting and care for your Perennials. Our Plant Locator will make the job easy.
In everyones quest for just the right look with their Garden/Container Garden, we should never forget about the great contrast Perennial Flowers can make with your patio garden, deck plants, hanging baskets, etc.
With some Perennials reaching 4-5 feet in height, these guys can certainly achieve a dramatic effect that a lot of annuals just can't match.
On the other hand, some of the Perennials in this flower gardening guide reach only a height of 6 inches. So the range of height is one "card in the deck" that we should always hold dear.
Create a simple perennial garden or a large one. Make an annual/perennial container garden combination. The sky is the limit!
Think about color, height, watering needs, full sun/shade, and use the flower identification guide to form the Garden/Container Garden of your dreams.
