Gardening with perennial flowers

Perennial flowers have a magic of their own and give years of pleasure since they repeat every year. They do not require any replanting. These flowers are the mainstay of your garden as they keep on growing year after year. The crucial thing about gardening with perennial flowers is the meticulous choice of plants. The leaves of perennial plants normally die whenever winter draws near. But, the nicest thing is they reappear every year. There are some perennial flowers that flourish for short-term, but there are others like peonies, hostas and daylilies that can prosper for a very long time.

When you decide to design your garden, it is imperative that you choose the right plants since you will be overwhelmed with many options. You need to decide on which perennials are perfect for your climate and conditions and on the other hand you need to make aesthetic choices like plant colors and combinations. Needs like soil, hardiness, light requirements and moisture levels need to be borne while gardening perennial flowers. Once you make the right decision, you will have a successful garden.

The new perennials in the first year will fail to impress. The flowers will be scant and the clumps will be small. In the second season, there will be better growth and more flowers and by the third season, the flowers will be awesome. You will look like a skilled gardener. Though perennial flowers bloom all the way through the season, they bloom at different times and there are fall bloomers, summer bloomers and spring bloomers. Some of the finest perennial flowers are lungwort, speedwell, bugleweed, pinks, cranesbill, tickseed, deadnettle and many more. Most of the perennial flowers need little maintenance. They require the occasional fertilizing and pruning. The main thing is planning the planting bed since they will remain in it for many years. With perennial flowers, your garden will surely look attractive!
