Perennial flowers for the whole summer: the best varieties for landscaping the garden

Flowering plants are a real decoration of the garden, which, filling it with juicy bright colors, create a unique effect of harmony and comfort. Their variety is simply amazing: there are about 300 thousand varieties of spectacular annuals and perennials pleasing to the eye. Choosing the design of the flowerbed for the whole summer, I want to create such compositions that can be enjoyed for several months. Let's see which varieties are best suited for these purposes.

Why are perennials better than annual "relatives"?

Despite the fact that annuals are famous for their unique riot of colors throughout the season, many gardeners still prefer long-blooming flowers. The reason for this choice is a number of advantages that perennials possess, the main among which are:

  • The possibility of growing in one place without transplanting for 2-3 years.
  • Resistance to frost. Plants tolerate winter well and do not require special care efforts.
  • Preservation of decorative qualities throughout the season.

They are ideal for the garden: growing for years in one place, for the most part, picky representatives of the plant world can safely form the basis of most mixed flower beds.

Due to the variety of perennial flowers, the range of which is represented by both herbaceous plants and shrubs, it is possible to create original compositions of various forms

In addition, landscaping a site using these flowers is not only simpler, but also much cheaper: within 2-3 years after planting, plants can be safely divided to create new compositions, exchange with neighbors or sell.

The most spectacularly look flower beds, grouped by the height of the plants and placed in tiers.
