The Q&A Archives: Long-Blooming Perennials

Question: I love the ease of having perennials in my garden but I am interested in finding some that have a longer bloom time. Any suggestions?

Answer: Because many bloom for just a few weeks, it's a good idea to plant lots of different perennials so that when one variety has finished its show, another is just beginning. The longest blooming perennials for your gardening zone include Achillea (June-Sept), Agastache (July-Sept), Campanula (June-Aug), Echinacea (June-Sept), Coreopsis (June-Sept), Daylilies (June-Sept), Gaillardia (June-Oct), Heliopsis (June-Sept), Lavender (June-Sept), Nepeta (June-Sept), Scabiosa (May-Oct), Salvia (June-Sept), and Verbena (June-Oct). Enjoy your colorful garden!
