Perennial plants are the backbone of every successful landscape and garden border. They are available in a wide range of sizes, colors and blooming seasons.

Orangey03 Post 13 I plant both annuals and perennials, because I have favorites in each category. My favorite annual plants are begonias, and my favorite perennials are daylilies.

Daylilies are available in such a wide range of colors. I have several different varieties. The green leaves sprout …

Last spring Judy and I were invited to visit a newly created garden in Warwickshire that had been planted up the previous autumn, and we were shocked to see many apparently hardy plants had been killed by last winter’s frosts. Obviously, when we design a planting plan, we are careful to select plants that are suitably hardy. So what caused these plants to succumb last winter? (It wasn’t one of our designs, by the way.) And if we plant new herbaceous perennials now, will they suffer …
