For the most part perennials will not flower until the second year, although a few may flower very lightly if they are started from seed quite early. Here are some you might obtain a few blooms on the first year they are grown from seed if started very early (indoors or in a greenhouse) : "Southern Charm" verbascum, purple coneflower, lance-leaf coreopsis, gaillardia, dianthus, the "Foxy" foxglove, and perennial sweet peas.
