Landscape Perennials Reference Chart

25 Popular Perennials
When designing an outdoor space perennials are an important component in providing color and interest to your landscape.  The possibilities are countless and there are many varieties to choose from.  For your convenience I have composed this handy reference chart organizing some of the more popular and preferred perennials.   A brief description showing bloom/foliage color, height and bloom time is supplied for each and the numbered descriptions match the photos in a left to right fashion.  Hope you find this information to be useful.

    1. My pleasure Deb. These are all wonderful plants and I have used them in my own gardens and in the gardens of clients. Glad to hear the information will be useful to you!

  3. What a great chart, that must of taken a lot of work, but it's perfect for reference. I pinned it, hope that's OK with you. If not just let me know, and I will delete it.

    Question? Have you ever grown a miniature Buddleia? Mine has extensive winter damage, and while I've grown the big guys, I have never grown the small ones...and now I see a post on your side bar...will check it out.

    1. Glad you like it! I am honored that you want to share it...please just make sure my copyright is on it. It did take a bit of work but I prefer organization so it was something I wanted to do over the long winter. As far as miniature Buddleia, it is one of my newest favorites in the garden. Mine hasn't really started showing any signs of life yet and won't until the end of April-beginning of May but they are pretty hardy. I have been enjoying them for three years now.

    1. Hi Louie. Thanks for visiting and commenting. Lavender is another good one. There are so many wonderful perennials...so many I would need a bigger chart! These are the ones I most often use due to their hardiness and blooms/foliage.
