We Ship Our Bareroot Plants To Everyone Nationwide.
Perennials are one of the easiest ways to add vibrant color to your garden with the least demanding care. You also get a far greater value on your plant investment when you compare them to annuals.
Why is that?
Perennials are long-lived species that come back every year without the need to spend extra money every spring. On the other hand, annual species live only for one season. Although annuals include many of your favorite show-off flowers, you can minimize gardening expenses by layering them with perennials.
TN Nursery is one of the country's top providers of perennials. Our customers seek our advice and consider us their first choice for planting needs. That's because we have seventy years of experience growing plants responsibly, sustainably, and in the best health.
We offer dozens of perennials--here are a few of our top-selling categories (although by no means an exhaustive list!).
As this category name implies, these plants are sun lovers. While some will adjust to a little bit of filtered sunshine, they primarily require a full sunshine spot to create the best-looking, most abundant blossoms. Some will also work well in a situation with at least six hours of morning sunshine and light shade in the afternoon. Choosing plants based on where you plan to put them will ensure success.
Here are five of our staff picks:
We have many more sun perennials on our website, so please check them out!
Our enormous shade perennials ensure that you have options to add color even to the darkest reaches of your shade garden. Some of our offerings love the entire shade and require little daylight; others will adapt to filtered sunshine. We have something for everyone.

Most gardeners love the outdoors and appreciate the beauty of deer--as long as they stay out of their gardens! Deer are voracious grazers and can completely obliterate your hard work in one evening of snacking.
While no plant guarantees to keep these foragers at bay, some seem to deter them. Deer have a superb sense of smell--a defense mechanism that helps them avoid predators. However, it also appears that they dislike certain flower fragrances.

Perennials improve the composition of the soil, unlike annuals, which live for a decade, require very little care and come back every spring. They reproduce by reseeding as well.

Perennials are plants that live decades. Although their tops often die back after they pass their flowering season, their roots are still very much alive, and they send up shoots the following spring.
Perennials provide more than reliable color and beauty. As a primary flower bed plant, they create a root system that helps improve soil structure. When perennials flourish, their roots support healthy soil aeration and improve the water and oxygen delivery system. However, those and other perennial benefits tend to fly under the radar.
That’s large because the average homeowner is focused on the landscape beautification perennials offer. Another reason people visit a Tennessee plant nursery is that perennials reduce the time you spend working in gardens and more time enjoying them. With that in mind, these are practical considerations when selecting perennials at our TN nursey.
When selecting the best perennials for your gardens, remember that only some species are suitable for the regional climate. Some cannot stand up to winter, and others may wilt under the heat of a Tennessee summer. There is, however, a wide range of perennials that offer everyday people a lifetime of attractive gardens.
These foundational perennials give gardens a sense of height, making the overall landscape appear robust. It’s also essential to infuse gardens with ground-level perennials such as phlox and mid-sized plants such as the brilliant Red Cardinal Flower, among others.
When organizing your perennial gardens, consider which species are inherently the more aggressive spreaders. For example, Daisies and Black-Eyed Susans can quickly overrun ornamentals and groundcovers. And while contrasting the rich colors of coneflowers side by side can be incredibly inspiring, gardeners may be tasked with ongoing thinning as they thrive. If you consider adding perennials to your property, our TN Nursery has a wide selection, and we are happy to answer any perennial questions.
