We are often asked for perennial plants that bloom all season. We thrifty New Englanders want to get the most bang for our buck!
While there are plenty of perennials that do bloom for long periods of the season, the only plants that truly bloom all summer are annuals. The gardens we drool over in magazines are the most colorful gardens because they are mix of perennials, shrubs and annuals.
Think of annuals like adding a cute, seasonal accent pillow to your sofa! While they will not winter over, planted in between all the perennials, annuals will provide a burst of color all season.
Perennials are a great choice, because with the proper care and planting, they will come back in your garden from year to year. When you are shopping for perennials, it is easy to buy all the beautiful plants that are in bloom when you are at the garden center. Remember to shop for perennials that aren’t yet blooming and you’ll be sure to have great color all season long!
