Lastly, we have Stokesia, the Peachy’s Pick variation. This little guy has a gorgeous purple bloom with a white center. It tends to thrive from May-June and can add needed color to any space!
Get out in your gardens soon and begin planting some of these perennials to enjoy all year long! Let your plants settle in for these colder months and only fertilize AFTER the first frost. Fertilizing during the plant’s dormant season can encourage it to actively grow, only to be killed by more frost. This practice of planting in the fall for the coming year is called vernalization and is crucial for any thriving garden. Plant your perennials and enjoy the fruits of your labor for years to come! I love to plant perennials in our garden and in my client’s garden! They add so much texture and beauty to any space!
