Remember to Choose Flower Perennials That are Appropriate for your Zone


When you are planning your perennial garden design and choosing your plants you must remember that there are flower perennials and non-flowering perennials. If you like the look of flower perennials then you can choose your plants accordingly, however it is always nice to have a contrast in your garden.

There are a few ways to choose plants. Depending on the zone that you live in will have a big impact on the plants that you choose. Certain flower perennials do better in certain zones, with some flowers not surviving at all in colder regions. It is important to choose hardy perennials for your region so that you will not be disappointed with the results.

Another very important thing to keep in mind when you are choosing your flower perennials is that most perennials bloom at different times during the season. If you would like a constant stream of blooms in your garden than the best thing that you can do is to choose perennials that will bloom at all times of the year.

Do your research when you choose your plants. Pick some flower perennials that will bloom in the springtime. When they are done blooming you should have other plants that will take over blooming through the summer months. There is also a large selection of perennials that will bloom throughout the fall months. There are of course perennials that will bloom throughout the season and it always nice to have a few of those as well to even out the blooms.

Another thing to keep in mind when choosing your flower perennials is the color of the blooms. Depending on your perennial garden design you may prefer one color of bloom over another color. Or perhaps you enjoy a garden with a wide variety of colors. If that is the case than you can choose any type of flowering perennial that strikes you and experience a beautiful variety of colors in your garden.
