OPEN RAIN OR SHINE

PERENNIALS

Perennials is a term that describes what many gardeners and homeowners strive for, which is a plant that comes back every spring. There are perennial plants that can meet just about every need a landscape has. Perennials range from low growing plants to tall growing plants, from those that produce colorful flowers to those that provide visual pleasure with glowing seed heads, such as those exhibited by some ornamental grasses.

Perennial gardens need to be planted only once.

Perennials tend to die back to the ground each winter. Perennial plants generally have fewer major problems than annuals and are sustainable with lower care and maintenance needs.

ACHILLEA

Achillea is one of those plants that give a wildflower look to any garden. In fact, it is indeed a native plant and, predictably, it’s easy to care for. In some gardens, it will thrive with almost no care, making it a good candidate for naturalistic plantings in open areas and along the edges of wooded or other wild places.
Varieties: Fireland, Summer Bernies, Summer Pastels, Terra Cotta
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

AJUGA

Ajuga is one of the most indispensable groundcovers around. It has many uses and looks great much of the year. Also known as carpetweed or bugleweed, ajuga forms a 6-inch-tall mat of glossy leaves that always seem to look neat and fresh. In many cases, the leaves are colored with shades of purple, white, silver, cream, or pink.
Varieties: Bronze Heart, Burgundy Glow
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

ANEMONE

Anemones are lovely, delicate flowers that dance atop slender stems, giving them their poetic common name — windflower. Depending on the type, anemones bloom in spring, summer, or through fall with pretty, slightly cupped flowers in rose, pink, or white rising over distinctive, deeply lobed foliage.
Varieties: September Charm, Sylvestris
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

BUDDLEIA

Drenching the air with a fruity scent, butterfly bush’s flower spikes are an irresistible lure to butterflies and hummingbirds all summer long. The plants have an arching habit that’s appealing especially as a background in informal flower borders. In warmer climates, butterfly bushes soon grow into trees and develop rugged trunks that peel.
Varieties: Black Knight, Nanho Blue, Royal Red
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

COREOPSIS

One of the longest bloomers in the garden, coreopsis produces (usually) sunny yellow daisylike flowers that attract butterflies. Coreopsis, depending on the variety, also bears golden-yellow, pale yellow, pink, or bicolor flowers. It will bloom from early to midsummer or longer as long as it’s deadheaded.
Varieties: Creme Brulee, Moonbeam, Tequilla Sunrise
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

ECHINACEA

Purple coneflower is so easy to grow and attractive and draws so many birds and butterflies that you simply must grow it, if you have the room. Valued for its large sturdy daisylike flowers with dropping petals, this prairie native will spread easily in good soil and full sun. It is bothered by few pests or diseases.
Varieties: Big Sky, Big Sky Sunrise, Primmadonna White, Rube Star
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

GAILLARDIA

Blanket flowers are wonderfully cheerful, long-blooming plants for hot, sunny gardens. They produce single or double daisy flowers through most of the summer and well into fall. The light brick red ray flowers are tipped with yellow — the colors of Mexican blankets.
Varieties: Burgundy, Goblin
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

HEUCHERA

Exciting new selections with incredible foliage patterns have put coralbells on the map. Previously enjoyed mainly for their spires of dainty reddish flowers, coralbells are now grown as much for the unusual mottling and veining of different-color leaves. They enjoy humus-rich, moisture-retaining soil.
Varieties: Fireworks, Palace Purple, Stormy Seas
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

HYDRANGEA

This shade-loving beauty offers huge bouquets of clustered flowers, in various arrangements from mophead to lacecap, from summer through fall. Varieties differ in size of plant and flower panicle, flower color, and blooming time. PeeGee hydrangeas grow into small trees; the flowers turn russet and cling into winter.
Varieties: All Summer Beauty, Glowing Ambers, Hornli, Mathilda Gutge, Nikko Blue, Penny Mac, Pia, Snow Queen, Blue Billow, Kiyoosumi, Enziandom
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

MONARDA

Bee balm is a wonderful plant for attracting butterflies and helpful bees. This prairie native has fascinating-shape flowers in jewel tones of red, pink, purple, and white, surrounded by dark bracts. They grow atop substantial clumps of dark foliage. The aromatic foliage is sometimes used for making tea.
Varieties: Blue Stocking, Colrain Red, Marshalls Delight
Container size: 1 Gallon pot

PHLOX

Phlox are one of those bounteous summer flowers any large sunny flowerbed or border shouldn’t be without. There are several different kinds of phlox. Garden and meadow phlox produce large panicles of fragrant flowers in a wide assortment of colors. They also add height, heft, and charm to a border.
Varieties: Pan – Blue Paradise, Franz Sherbert, Laurea, Orange Perfection, Starfire
Container Size: 1 Gallon pot

RUDBECKIA

Add a pool of sunshine to the garden with a massed planting of black-eyed Susan. From midsummer, these tough native plants bloom their golden heads off in sun or light shade and mix well with other perennials, annuals, and shrubs.
Varieties: Goldstrum, Indian Summer
Container Size: 1 Gallon pot
