Gardeners love perennials because they provide gorgeous color, shapes and sizes for years of enjoyment. You too can create the lovely flowerbeds that you've seen on the glossy pages of catalogues and garden magazines. It will be a joy to watch your garden “spring to life” each season. We've designed this mix to take the guesswork out of planning a perennial garden. You'll be delighted with the successive show of blooms from this packet that will last from spring into fall. A perennial garden has the added bonus of providing nectar for bees, food for birds, and winter interest if the plants are left standing.
