Perennials are a reliable way to add splashes of color to your landscape. Some perennials live two to four years by reseeding so new plants grow and liven up the garden year after year. Others which much live longer can become a permanent part of the landscape.

Many of the perennials listed here are considered to be perennial wildflowers and are frequently used in combination with annual wildflowers. Others in this adaptable group of plants can be used as groundcovers, accents, borders, or in containers.

To keep perennials looking fresh, remove flowerheads after the bloom period and occasionally prune lightly to encourage new growth.
