11 Herbaceous perennials to add to your garden

Perennials

Why plant herbaceous perennials?

Herbaceous perennials are valued and praised by gardeners for their resilience. Few gardens are without at least one perennial plant. Many are easy to grow and can reward you for years (or decades) to come.

There are many benefits to planting herbaceous perennials, here are a few:

  • They attract pollinators and beneficial insects
  • Herbaceous perennials will return yearly
  • Many of them can self seed or be divided giving you more plants
  • They are a cost effective way to make a gorgeous space with less maintenance


What is a perennial?

A perennial is a plant that lives for three or more years and continues to grow after reproduction. Simply put, perennials will return year after year and some can even live hundreds of years.

There are two types of perennials: woody and herbaceous.

Woody perennials are just how they sound– woody! Their stems have more texture than herbaceous perennials and do not die back in winter.

Herbaceous perennials have frost-tender stems that die back in winter and then regrow in spring and summer. This cycle repeats yearly for as long as the plant lives.

What is an annual?

An annual is a plant that grows vegetation, flowers, and seeds, and dies off in a single year. Annuals may spread enough seed to return the following year, but it’s not always a guarantee.

What is a biennial?

A biennial is a plant that grows vegetation the first year and in the second year it flowers, seeds, then dies off. Some common biennials are carrots, foxgloves, and hollyhock.

How are herbaceous perennials different from woody perennials?

Herbaceous perennials have vegetation that dies, while the roots remain alive. Herbaceous perennial plants will regrow their vegetation the following year.

Woody perennials have stems that do not die in winter. Instead, their stems grow a little more each year. Technically, shrubs fall into this category (even though we don’t categorize them as perennials).

Why do I need to know what zone I live in?

It's important to know what zone you live in so you are able to make the best decision when buying plants. If you end up buying plants that are perennial in other zones, but not yours, it can be unpleasant to discover that they didn't regrow the following year.

Knowing your zone helps you make the right plant purchasing choices. This saves you from having to re-purchase or replace plants. Knowing your zone means that your time and money will be well spent!

Where can I find herbaceous perennials?

Most nurseries have herbaceous perennial plants for sale, but they can be tricky to track down. Because the majority of nurseries profit from selling annuals, few offer a wide array of options.

Here at Tennessee Nursery, we specialize in growing and selling native perennials. If fact, 94% of our stock is made up of native plants!

Growing native plants increases food supplies for butterflies and other pollinators. Additionally, it encourages the presence of beneficial insects for a more balanced ecosystem.
