June is Perennials Month – Here is a Handy Blooming Guide Month by Month

Perennials in bloom month by month

There are over 300 different types of perennials. We can compose a list of many of the favourites to help you understand when your plants will be in bloom

Advantages of Perennials

  • Reliable & resilient, returning every year.
  • Lots of variety
  • Low maintenance plants. They require less than two or three hours of attention per week.
  • Commonly increase in size, which allows you to divide them and spread them to other areas in your yard
  • Many gardeners combine them with annuals & bulbs to create a diverse and vibrant garden all season long

If you are looking for a beautiful but low maintenance yard, perennials are a good fit. To learn more about these low maintenance plants and flowers, come into our garden centre or give us a call.
