Is it better to plant perennials from seed or from plants to guarantee blooms and cut flowers the first year?

Hands down, the best way to see flowers from perennials the first year is by growing plants instead of seeds. There's never a guarantee that seed-started perennials will bloom the first year. Even if they do, they don't usually produce many blooms. Instead, their energy goes into establishing themselves.
