Vibrant Perennial Accents For Your Garden

Perennials are vibrant plants in various colors, textures, and shapes

The underground part of perennials can withstand the cold winter months, so they'll return in the spring for several years. Choosing several varieties instead of a large mixture of clashed colors will accent your garden with balance. You can also choose your favorite perennial and add a color scheme to complement it.

Perennials are low-maintenance plants

When grown in a location that receives plenty of sunlight and is correctly cared for. These plants can quickly move to different garden areas and still grow well. Several types of perennials are red cardinal flowers, yellow Day Lilies, and orange coneflower. The vibrant colors attract birds, bees, and hummingbirds, which feed off the nectar. Hummingbirds love the Jewelweed plant!

Red cardinal flowers are so vivid that they brighten a garden even in the shade and look beautiful alongside yellow Day Lilies. These flowers grow best in moist soil and partial shade but can also handle full sun. A red cardinal flower will bloom from mid-summer to mid-fall and grow about 2 to 3 1/2 inches tall. Larkspur Delphenium is like the purple twin to the cardinal flower. 

Yellow Day Lillies bloom from late spring to autumn and can grow in various climates. Care is relatively easy with regular watering and plenty of sunlight. They need about six hours of full sun but can tolerate part shade. These flowers adapt quickly to good soil but should be moist and well-drained.

Perennials are a wonderful accent to many types of gardens

Avoid over-watering perennials or fungi that could grow. It's essential to let the soil completely dry out between watering times. Add organic material as mulch at least twice a year. Only use a small amount of fertilizer, or plants may grow too big and not produce flowers.

 

Jewelweed plant

Jewelweed Plant

It is known for its vibrant appearance and unique characteristics and offers various landscaping benefits. Its inclusion can contribute to a garden or outdoor space's overall aesthetic appeal and ecological balance.  Jewelweed (Impatiens capensis) is an annual wildflower known as orange balsam and spotted touch-me-not. Some say it gets its name from the sparkling dewdrops that line its leaves in the morning, while others contend that the brilliant, red-spotted orange flowers glow like bright jewels. These flowers are also famous for their explosive seed pods, which give the plant the name "touch-me-not." Native to northern and eastern North America, it starts blooming in June and continues until it succumbs to October frosts. The flower grows naturally in cool, low woodlands and decorates shady stream banks, creek banks, lakesides, and marshes. The Appearance Of Jewelweed Orange balsam is a lush green wildflower that grows 3'–5' tall. It branches prolifically and produces a profusion of inch-long, spotted orange blossoms with blood-orange or red markings. Each delicate blossom hangs from its stalk among neighboring flowers. They have two lips, five petals, and three sepals, one of which is a pouch-shaped structure with a nectar spur that curves back under the rest of the flower. The blooms form small clusters that rise above the herb's upper leaves. The Jewelweed's round green to reddish-grTNeen stems are smooth, succulent, and semi-translucent. Its toothed, spade-shaped, bluish-green leaves are usually about 2½"–3" long and grow alternating on the herb's upper stems. Jewelweed Is Great In Woodland Gardens  Jewelweed makes a beautiful addition to woodland gardens, shady rain gardens, and pollinator gardens. It's great for ponds, bog gardens, and lowland areas. Although it's an annual, this wildflower tends to return once established. Pollinators Love Jewelweed Plant The blossoms attract butterflies and other pollinators. Hummingbirds and bumblebees, the herb's primary pollinators, find nourishment in its sweet nectar and play a significant role in its successful propagation. It is also a food source for moth caterpillars, bobwhite quail, mice, and deer, and it is fond of its stems, leaves, and seeds. If you'd like to add a bright pop of orange to your summer garden, planting it will bring joy to your landscape with its delightful blooms.
