Long Blooming Perennials For Use In Your Home Garden

Woodbine, MD (PRWEB) June 5, 2007

As a long time Horticultural professional, Vicki Smith at Lawn and Garden Search (http://www.lgyp.com) has exciting news and guidance for choosing and using flowering perennials with long bloom times in today’s low maintenance landscapes.

Selecting and staggering different types of perennials is the key to having a variety of interesting plants in flower all season. This group of recommended plants will flower at least 6 to 8 weeks with many flowering more than 12 weeks, often until frost: Balloonflower (Platycodon grandiflorus) looks particularly good with yellow Yarrow for summer and fall color; Black Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia fulgida, lacinata and nitida types) is in color in summer and fall; Bleeding Heart (Dicentra species and many improved cultivars) are easy and great for sun and shade; Blue Star Creeper (Amsonia), a native plant for sun or partial shade, adds lovely spring and summer color before many perennials get going; Bluebeard Spirea or blue-mist shrub (Caryopteris x clandonensis) and cultivars which are hardy enough to be grown as a shrub in much of the country stay in color through fall.

For moist shady locations native Cardinal and Blue Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis and L. siphilitica) are absolutely striking and attract hummingbirds; heat and drought-tolerant native Coneflowers (Echinacea purpurea, E. tennesseensis and wonderful new hybrids) are a must for the sunny garden greatly expanding the color choices while attracting butterflies; native Coralbells (Heuchera) are as good for the foliage as the flowers in partial shade and moist soils; native Coreopsis or Tickseed with emphasis on the ‘Early Sunrise’, ‘Moonbeam’, ‘Sunfire’ and ‘Zagreb’ cultivars will blend nicely with other sun loving perennials; Cranesbill, the hardy true Geraniums, have so many types and colors it is easy to try several different ones for the partial shade or sun garden with moist soils, some even being tolerant of heavy shade.

Don’t forget about Clematis vines when considering perennials for the garden. Adding the vertical element, such as growing them on an obelisk, is an interesting way to add height while keeping the texture light. An increasingly popular way to add Clematis is to grow them with shrubs such as dwarf, upright conifers so the vines flower over the outside of the evergreens adding a nice accent without taking up any extra space in the landscape.

Daylily (Hemerocallis) has thousands of hybrids with the newest outstanding group of rebloomers extending the bloom time even further; Garden Phlox (P. paniculata) is better for sunny northern gardens adding soft textured flowers all summer in every color; Gaura, a native perennial or shrub, is tough and durable despite their delicate, airy appearance. Minimal trimming of spent flowers will allow flowering to continue from late spring to fall; although Hostas are usually grown more for their foliage, the often fragrant purple, lavender or white flowers are handsome and abundant, particularly on large, mature plants; Hollyhock (Alcea rosea) and Hibiscus or Rose Mallows are good for the back of the garden for their height, summer through fall large flowers and brilliant contrast.

Sage hybrids (Salvia x sylvestris, S. x superba) and cultivars add spectacular spring and summer blue and lavender color on tall spikes. They need moisture and will reward the home gardener with a wonderful display; Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum or Chrysanthemum x superbum) for full sun will continue to flower if spent blooms are easily removed; Speedwell (Veronica species and hybrids) offer summer and fall blues and reds for the sunny garden; diverse in form and color, Stonecrop (Sedum) species and many wonderful hybrid cultivars range in heights from low groundcover to 24 inches high with foliage of every color and flowers that change color as they mature over many weeks. Like Stonecrop, Yarrows (Achillea) love full sun and prefer to be on the dry side. They have dainty feathery foliage and mounds of butterfly attracting flowers of many colors all summer.

With so much focus on outdoor living and container gardening, utilizing these dynamic perennials will add excitement to the patio, deck, landscape or in raised planters mixed with shrubs, ornamental grasses, annuals or even tropicals. It only takes a few minutes of time and minimal effort to gain incredible color all season. Visitors and friends coming to the home will feel welcome and admire the beauty too.

Local garden centers are growing perennials in larger sizes for more instant impact. Visiting the nursery every several weeks during the summer will ensure that the home gardener can continue to add bright splashes of mid and late season color to the landscape and continue to enjoy the effect year after year.
