Perennials for the Mid-South

What is a Perennial?

Perennials have a life cycle more than 2 years long because they survive winter temperatures. They are often dormant part of the year.

To our benefit, Perennials come back every year, unlike Annuals.

To our disappointment, Perennials have a shorter bloom-time than Annuals.
