The Q&A Archives: Best Perennial Flowers

Question: What kind of perennial flowers will grow best in my area?

Answer: In your cold-winter climate you'll want to grow some fairly hardy perennials. Some of my favorites include asters, Campanula, Coreopsis, Dahlia, Dianthus, Echinacea (purple cone flower), Gladiolus, Liatris, Phlox, Rudbeckia (Gloriosa Daisy), Scabiosa and Achillea (yarrow).

These do best in sunny locations.
