But first, here are a few important tips to keep in mind while selecting, placing, and planting your perennials this year:
1. The Amount of Sun the Area Gets
When selecting your favorite perennials for your home garden, think about the area that you intend to plant them in. How much sun does it get? Is it morning or afternoon sun? Both of these questions are important to know the answers to, since natural sunlight is crucial to keeping plants healthy. Too much sun or too little sun will result in poor plant growth, depending on the plant’s preference.
2. Plant Height
Whether you’re mapping out a garden for the first time or just want to spruce things up around your existing space, checking plant height before committing is helpful, too. The taller the plant the further back it should be placed, not only for aesthetics, but also so you aren’t blocking plants in the rest of your garden.
3. Unexpected “Visitors”
Pollinators like honeybees, butterflies, and hummingbirds are attracted to many perennials like Bee Balm, Cone Flowers and Russian Sage. If you choose to plant these perennials in your yard, it’s important to keep in mind that they’ll attract these amazing creatures. This isn’t a bad thing— you’re helping a vital part of our ecosystem thrive!
