Varieties for 2015
Choose perennials if you want plants that come back year after year. For maximum variety in color, height and bloom time, perennials are your best bet. Best of all, perennials can be divided after a few years, giving you double plants for the buck! Perennials can be grown in containers, either alone or with annuals or other perennials. They also look great in the landscape. There are plenty of varieties to choose from, whether you need sun or shade, or have wet or dry beds.
