Planting perennials requires extra care than planting annuals does. This is due to the nature of the plants themselves. Most flowering perennials will generally not bloom their first season, due to the necessity of strengthening the root system for the coming winter. When planting, many factors must be taking into consideration to ensure long plant life. The first factor to take into consideration is the location. Some perennials can withstand colder winters than others.
To check which plants can survive in each region, you can enter your zip code to see your USDA Plant Hardiness Zone. Sunlight and soil conditions must also be taken into consideration. Read the Plant Highlight Facts on each product page before deciding which perennials will work best for each location of the garden.
