About This Blog

I have been growing many different plants and flowers for about ten years, and perennial varieties quickly became my favorite because they always came back each spring in my garden. Perennial flowers are flowers that grow back every year, for at least three years, when they are given the required conditions for survival. In other words, so long as it doesn't get too cold in the winter, the plant will survive and the flowers will regrow in the following spring.

I am also a blogger and I realized that there isn't a lot of centralized information about perennial flowers, as most pages focus on 10-20 flowers at most. I decided it would be a good idea to write a blog about perennial flowers, categorizing them (eventually) by color, hardiness, growth characteristics, and flowering season.

My goal is to make it easy to learn about the different characteristics of these plants by plainly categorizing each post I write. Clicking on the tags in any article is a good way to find related information. If you want to search for something in particular, click "search" at the top of the page.

The images from this website are from Morguefile, which I have modified. Each image has been cropped, color calibrated or color enhanced, and has had a word superimposed over it, which is generally the name of the depicted flower.
