Pretty perennials are easy and reliable
June 5th, 2020
Last week we talked about colorful, low-water annuals for your containers. Now let’s discuss the benefits of water-wise perennials. They are low-maintenance, need little water, and, if properly established, won’t need to be replaced each season.
Water-wise perennials need more water during their first growing season to become established, but in following growing seasons require much less water. All the hardy, low-water plants listed below offer color and interest in the landscape and have low water needs once established.
- Oenothera ‘Silver Blade’ evening primrose
- Berlandiera lyrata chocolate flower
- Gaillardia ‘Goblin’ blanket flower
- WINDWALKER® royal red salvia
- Salvia sylvestris May Night Meadow Sage
- Rudbeckia hirta black-eyed susan
- Artemisia frigida fringed Sage
- Helianthus pumilus bush sunflower
If you're not familiar with these varieties, do a quick Google search by name to see photos and learn more about each plant, or consult one of our designers for help identifying the right perennials for your landscape.
Then relax and enjoy a landscape that is both beautiful and water-efficient!
