Choosing Perennial Plants That Suit Your Garden and Your Personality

When choosing the right plants for your garden, many want perennial plants that are lower maintenance and easy to care for. There are a number of beautiful perennials that will help you to make your garden special. In fact, many of these are also considered to be very low maintenance, meaning that they require very little care. When choosing the right perennials for your landscaping needs you should select those that are best suited to your planting zone and your specific garden area. Plant Delights Nursery, Inc. offers a number of perennial plants that are low maintenance and will give you many years of beauty.

Coneflower is a very popular choice for those who want low maintenance perennials. Coneflower can grow in colors of purple, orange, pink, red, yellow, white and a number of other vibrant colors. Coneflower blooms all throughout the summer and will basically care for itself. They typically bloom late in spring and early in summer. We offer a number of coneflower species in a wide range of flower colors that are all handpicked for their quality. For those in USDA zones 3 through 8, coneflower is a good choice for a low maintenance perennial.

We also provide coral bells (heuchera), which are very hardy in zones 3 through 8 as well. Coral bells come in vibrant, beautiful colors of white, red and pink and offer beautiful foliage. Many varieties of coral bells are favorable to partial shade/partial sun, which makes them very low maintenance as you can plant them where little sunlight penetrates into your gardening area. The colorful leaves of coral bells can be found in purple, green and butterscotch and offer the perfect backdrop for other flowering perennials in your garden.

When you need low maintenance perennial plants, Plant Delights Nursery offers a number of options. We provide a wide range of perennials in a variety of colors, textures, shapes and sizes to ensure that you have the opportunity to completely customize your garden and make it truly unique. We offer unique and hard to find perennials as well such as the elephant ear (colocasia) or Voodoo lily (amorphophallus).
