Gardening with Perennial Flowers: Everlasting Blooms

Lavender (Lavandula spp.): Known for its fragrant blossoms, lavender is a perennial plant that draws pollinators and fills the garden with smell.

Coneflower (Echinacea spp.): Having daisy-like blossoms that entice butterflies and offer summertime color for a prolonged period, coneflowers are hardy perennials.

Daylilies (Hemerocallis spp.): Hardy perennials with a plethora of colors and forms, daylilies bloom brilliantly all summer long.

Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum superbum): Traditionally grown as perennials, Shasta daisies have yellow centers and white petals, and they bloom abundantly from late spring to early October.

Tall spikes of lavender-blue flowers and scented silver-gray leaves characterize the drought-tolerant perennial Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia).

Peony (Paeonia spp.): Late spring to early summer brings a burst of color to these long-lasting perennials, which are prized for their enormous, spectacular flowers.

Stonecrops, or Sedum spp., are low-maintenance perennials with succulent leaves and clusters of star-shaped blooms.

Pollinators are drawn to the garden by the cheery, yellow daisy-like Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) blooms, which bloom from midsummer to fall.
