It’s easy to get wrapped up in the instant gratification of annual flowers. They’re showy, they’re cheap and they really make an impact. Then again, at the end of the year, that’s money that you’re never going to get back. Not only that, you’re forced to pick from the same limited selection of plants that everyone else is picking from.
How many front yards with a row of Red Leaved Begonias are you going to plant in your life? How many little holes are you going to burrow until you finally say enough?
Perhaps you haven’t dabbled in the Perennial pool because you’ve been put off by the fact they are typically a little more expensive than Annuals. If you think about it, they’re really more of an investment plant as opposed to a plant that you throw money away on every year. Sure, those annuals make great additions to your compost bin, but what about using that money someplace else every year?
You might also be put off by the fact that “Eh, perennials are a lot of work“. Not true, with proper selection of plant material, perennials can be drastically less maintenance than annuals.
The BEST part about perennials is that they’ll fit into whatever landscape configuration you have. Classy, simple, bright, we’ve got it all. Take some inspiration from these snapshots and come in for some one on one counseling to get your yard perennial ridden.
