Perennials

There are literally hundreds of perennials available so we have only listed the most popular. We have also divided them into long-lived perennials that tend to be very tough and thrive year after year. And short-lived perennials – those that require or are best replaced with new plants every year, or every second year. Long or short lived, some perennials may be long lived in ideal conditions but short lived in unsuited conditions.
