When planting flowers in your landscape, you have two main choices: annuals and perennials. While annual flowers are those that last just one season, perennial flower varieties are designed to bloom year after year. You may notice your perennials die into the ground during the winter, but you can expect new growth again when spring arrives. Perennials can certainly give you maximum enjoyment for your investment, but there are other valued advantages of choosing this type of flower for your Georgia garden.
- #1 Low Maintenance
- Compared to annuals that you have to purchase and plant every year, perennials can be considered a lower-maintenance option. However, don’t mistake this for “maintenance-free,” as they will still need proper care and attention throughout the year.
- #2 Free Flowers
- Some perennial varieties are known to multiply! While you’ll need to peform the minor task of digging and dividing, this can equate to additional flowers in your garden that you didn’t have to pay for.
- #3 Dynamic Appearance
- If you like to be surprised or you get tired of the same boring look in your landscape, you’ll love a perennial’s ability to change their appearance throughout the year.
- #4 Endless Varieties
- With the countless variety options of perennials, you are sure to find the color, texture and shape combination you are looking for.
- #5 Quick Enjoyment
- One of the highlighted advantages of many perennials is their fast growth. They are considered smaller, longer-lasting and quicker growing compared to annuals. Some may even reach their full mature size after just one season! An excellent choice for the impatient gardener.
