Welcome Perennials to Your Home Garden

There was a time not many people knew what the plants that survive the winter were classified as. It has been exciting over the past few years to hear new gardeners share their passion for perennials. In this post, I share how to Welcome Perennials To Your Home Garden.

Why Perennials in The Garden

Lucky to have been friends and have family members who knew the value of growing perennials in a home garden I always had color in the landscape.  I always knew these were the plants you want in your home landscape because they save you money.  Unlike the annual plants, these perennials come back each year keeping your garden alive.  IF you are lucky, you’ll have a perennial that likes the space it is growing in and multiply giving you more plants throughout the years.

Another win-win with perennials is there are many that are the first to bloom in my garden each year after a long snowy winter.  Sometimes perennials like the hellebore will pop up and bloom even in the snow.  Other early perennials to arrive are the hellebores, daffodils, tulips, and primrose.
