Shopping with DCRG for the perfect plants -Part 3
Most successful gardens have foundation plants, trees and shrubs, and ground cover, along with perennials, annuals, and vines. Over the next few weeks, we will walking you through step by step on how to create the perfect outdoor space for your home. If you missed the last two weeks, be sure to check out the beginning steps on the past two posts.
Step 4 :Planning your perennials and annuals.
Perennials come back year after year, blooming for two weeks or even all season long, depending on the variety. They are more expensive initially, but save money over time. Annuals die after one year. They are less expensive than perennials initially, but must be replaced each year. A few begin blooming in late winter or early spring, but most bloom in mid-to late spring and provide color for months. A good local nursery will feature those that are easiest to grow in your region, but ask about sun, soil, and water requirements; how long it blooms; what the flower looks like; and any diseases or pests that threaten it. When choosing a perennial, also ask if the plant dies back in cold weather or, if not, what the foliage looks like throughout the year.
