The Perennials at Goffle Brook Farms

Perennial flowers and plants are often considered the backbones of the flower beds. Unlike the annuals we plant each year, herbaceous perennials die to the ground at the end of the growing seasons and then next spring they grow back from their same root systems. Perennials, planted properly, are easy to care for, provide interesting and beautiful blooms and come in a vast selection of color, form, texture and growth habits.

Dark Pink Peony - Goffle Brook FarmsTheir lifespan, bloom time and culture vary greatly. Some species, such as delphiniums, lupines and such are the so called “short-lived” perennials, having a life span of only three to five years while others can prosper in the beds for fifteen to twenty years and then there are peonies, which can last a lifetime. In my beds at home I have a Peony that I recall as a young lad, my Mother telling me she propagated it from my Grandmother’s farm. That was over 60 years ago and each and every year without fail, voila – “a blessing from grams” appears in my garden.

Plant perennials according to their habits and requirements. Primroses, which require a deep and humus style soil medium and shade should not be planted with “moonbeam” coreopsis which requires full sun and a well-drained soil. Then there are perennials that grow and remain in a nice and neat mounded shape, and then there are others such as bee balm with its lofty spikes of flowers.
