Continuous bloom is achievable with the right plant choices and long-blooming perennials are the backbone to creating it. Also choosing perennials with outstanding foliage cannot be emphasized enough. Foliage provides colour and texture in the garden when the flowers are not in bloom. Register to join the free workshop
Long-Blooming Perennials on April 22nd at Plant Paradise Country Gardens. In this colourful PowerPoint presentation Lorraine Roberts will highlight many of the best long-blooming perennials.
It’s very difficult to whittle down the list of my top eight long-blooming perennials. The plant choices are limitless and there will always be a new plant or hybrid, but I am recommending long blooming, hardy perennials that we have grown and trialed in our Caledon, Ontario Zone 5 botanical garden - Plant Paradise Country Gardens. All of these plants grow well in soil that is amended with compost and once established; rely only on rainfall for water.
These are my choices for the top eight, long blooming perennials. All for sale at Plant Paradise Country Gardens. Check out the complete catalog
