From Spring to Fall with Perennials


To make a garden work from Spring to fall you should always plant Perennials with beautiful fall foliage, so that when the Spring and Summer blooms are spent, the fall foliage can take up the slack. Another tip is to plant taller plants in the back but still keep in mind the theme of Spring to Fall.

Some Perennials with very pretty foliage are; ribbon grass, maiden grass, Japanese iris, hostas, lady's mantle, astilbe, and a variety of heather's.

Ground covers are good plants to use in the very front and they spread rapidly. See the funny video below.
