Perennials are perennial ornamental plants that are planted in home garden beds. They have very colorful flowers, are easy to grow, and are not expansive, so they do not compete with other plants.

There are plenty of beautiful flower species that can be classified as perennials. It is very convenient from the point of view of the gardener that they do not have to plant them anew every year. Ornamental perennials spend the winter and later autumn below ground so that they are protected from the harsh weather conditions. The multicoloured flowers decorate the beds wonderfully and create a lovely and unusual atmosphere in the garden

Another perennial from the aster family is the New England aster. Its flowers also have a beautiful intense color, but they are much smaller than those of its predecessors. This is compensated by the fact that there are many of them on a bush, so the plant is a beautiful ornament in our garden.

Phlox

Perennial garden plants, which are worth having in your garden, include the popular in Poland phlox, also called flame.

Peonies

A characteristic feature is their unique fragrance. Some say that each variety of peony smells different: some delicate and ethereal, others sweet and captivating. Thanks to the fact that they are perennial flowers, you only need to plant them once to enjoy them every summer after that.
