HomeStyle: Pretty as a perennial

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published May 16, 2014 at 11:00 a.m.

Perennials are an easy way to add color to the garden, whether it’s wet or dry, in sun or in shade, writes Janet B. Carson in HomeStyle.

By definition, a perennial is a plant that comes back for more than one year. In a perfect world, they come back forever, but weather can make that a challenge some years.

Some perennials bloom for a few weeks while others can bloom for months.

The key to picking perennials is to choose plants that like the conditions you have in your yard. It’s also smart to select a variety of plants that can give you color in various seasons.

See Saturday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for Carson’s top perennial picks.
