There are hundreds of perennials you can plant in your cutting garden! Rather than try to list them all, here's a website you can visit:

Flowers last longest in vases if you cut them before they are fully opened and if you change the water every 2-3 days. You can increase their vase life if you cut a little off the bottom of the stem everytime you change the water in the vase. Enjoy your cutting garden!
