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.
Native vegetation evolved to live with the local climate, soil types, and animals. This long process brings us several gardening advantages. Native plants provide multiple benefits to people and wildlife, while contributing greatly to healthy soil and water in urban and rural areas. Native plants attract a variety of birds, butterflies, and other wildlife by providing diverse habitats and food sources.
