Gardening enthusiasts enjoy vibrant perennial flowering plants that turn their property into a masterpiece. But planting flower beds from scratch each year can become tedious and labor-intensive to relax and peacefully enjoy the landscape. Home gardeners quickly discover that perennials form a base from which they can integrate a few annuals each year. This balanced approach allows everyday people to enjoy green-thumb activities while watching perennials flourish and bloom without excessive work.

While homeowners enjoy the results of their flower beds, perennials also deliver a wide range of benefits that few realize. Through a better understanding of the role perennials play and some popular choices, we hope you can make informed decisions about planting perennials this season.

Benefits of Planting Perennials in Home Gardens

Experienced gardeners typically prefer perennials because they produce beautiful flowers. Some bloom for relatively short periods of up to three weeks. Other perennials can hold their color or re-bloom throughout the warm weather. Homeowners can anticipate lush greenery from spring through early fall even when they are not in full bloom. These rank among the benefits that tend to fly under the gardening radar.

  • Soil Composition: The root system developed by perennials helps improve soil structure and resists erosion from heavy rains and flooding. The roots of perennials also include spaces for water to filter through, percolate, and promote aeration. This process increases soil health for other plants to thrive as well.
  • Soil Nutrients: Perennials enjoy a deeper root system than annuals. As roots dive, they access nutrients and retrieve them to the surface.
  • Ground Cover: When cold weather creeps in, perennials die back. During this period, they form a cover crop that helps protect the land from erratic weather patterns.

Perennials also present as a tremendous asset because they propagate year-over-year. Some varieties can fill out a designated garden after purchasing only a few starter plants. Many home gardeners discover they can transplant new perennials and develop other areas of their property. In essence, cost-effectiveness remains a crucial benefit.

Popular Perennials for Home Gardens

Property owners typically like that perennials do not necessarily require mulching or composting and remain among the low-maintenance assets. That being said, the following rank among the more popular perennials.

  • Black-Eyed Susan:This native wildflower thrives in full sun and handles even average soil conditions and drought reasonably well. Showcasing yellow-orange petals with dark brown centers, it blooms from June through September in many areas and reaches heights of three feet.
  • Daisy: Producing lovely white petals with golden centers, the Daisy typically requires full sun and well-drained soil conditions. This perennial makes an excellent companion to many others. However, the 3-foot perennial can overtake gardens unless thinned.
  • Daylily: Reaching heights of four feet, the Daylily infuses bold colors into any home garden. This tall perennial can be employed to line fences or as a standalone. It prefers rich, well-drained soil conditions.

These popular flowering perennial plants highlight the reasons why home gardeners select healthy and hardy perennials to complete gardens and landscapes. We offer a complete inventory of perennials. Contact our nursery to place an order or answer any questions about perennials.

Brown Eyed Susan - TN Nursery

Brown Eyed Susan

Brown-eyed Susan has bright yellow flowers that act as a beacon for bees, butterflies, and other insects, providing them with a valuable source of nectar and pollen. It is a vibrant and versatile perennial plant with numerous landscaping benefits. Its charming golden-yellow blooms with dark brown centers make it a delightful addition to gardens, natural areas, and urban landscapes. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, it contributes to the overall health and sustainability of the environment. Brown-Eyed Susans Has Tons Of Blooms With vibrant yellow flowers, Brown Eyed Susans are in full bloom and easy to spot. Formally known as rudbeckia triloba, these flowers feature plush center disks that are a deep brown purple. These fuzzy centers gradually fade to brown and are surrounded by six to 12 bright yellow rays. The result is a daisy-like flower measuring one to two inches across. Each plant boasts several blooms. Large, healthy plants can display six or more blooms simultaneously. The stems supporting these vivid blooms are reddish, coarse, and densely branching. Upright and prone to clumping, they range in height from two to five feet. The stems have fine white hairs along their upper half and are trimmed with green leaves. The leaves can differ in size and formation. Those at the top tend to be smaller and more straightforward. Why You Need Brown-Eyed Susan's How do you decide if you want them? Both are gorgeous coneflowers that can add a lively splash of yellow to your landscape. However, there are distinct differences. They have smaller flowers with fewer petals. They also have a more abundant output of flowers. In addition, they tend to bloom for a more extended period. Brown Eyed Susan Will Reproduce Easily  They are classified as either perennial or biennial, and Brown Eyed Susan will often self-seed and self-pollinate. They bloom beautifully from the middle of summer through the first frost, so you can usually spot their cheery yellow flowers from July through October. Gardeners who want to create an informal look or naturalize an area favor cut flowers, which are frequently found in borders and mass plantings. Cut flowers attract bees, butterflies, and birds, making them an excellent choice for landscapers who want to draw pollinators. Cut flowers are gorgeous, so they’re often popular with growers who enjoy creating floral arrangements.
