Good to Know: What are Perennials?

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Getting into gardening? Learn all about perennials and why you'll get such a great return on their bright blooms and fantastic foliage.

Perennials live for multiple seasons and provide year-round color. Perennials survive the winter and return with new growth during the next growing season.

So once perennials are planted they will continue to bloom year after year after year. Therefore, the lack of having to repurchase or replant makes perennials a great return on your garden investment.

The lasting ability for perennials requires that they be planted in the right places. Luckily there is a perennial that is perfect for almost any soil or sun condition.

Here's a list of perennials for certain garden conditions.

Shady Garden:

  • Ferns
