Daylilies are so easy to grow you'll often find them growing in ditches and fields, escapees from gardens. And yet they look so delicate, producing glorious trumpet-shape blooms in myriad colors. In fact, there are some 50,000 named hybrid cultivars in a range of flower sizes (the minis are very popular), forms, and plant heights. Some are fragrant. The flowers are borne on leafless stems. Although each bloom lasts but a single day, superior cultivars carry numerous buds on each scape so bloom time is long, especially if you deadhead daily. The strappy foliage may be evergreen or deciduous. Shown above: 'Little Grapette' daylily
Enjoy flowers every day from spring to fall with our guide to perennial flowers by bloom season.
Daylilies and lilies are two big-impact, easy-to-grow plants for your summer garden.
Looking like something out of a storybook, delphiniums are the favorite flowers of many gardeners. They produce luxurious, gravity-defying flower spikes of blue, pink, white, or purple flowers, which tower above substantial mounds of coarse leaves. Grow delphinium in cool summer climates with little wind and adequate moisture. They may rebloom if flower stalks are cut back after flowers fade.
Dianthus: The quintessential cottage flower. Pinks are treasured for their grasslike blue-green foliage and abundant starry flowers, which are often spicily fragrant. Depending on the type of pink, dianthus flowers appear in spring or summer and tend to be pink, red, white, rose, or lavender, but come in nearly all shades except true blue. Dianthus plants range from tiny creeping groundcovers to 30-inch-tall cut flowers, which are a favorite with florists. Foliage is blue-green. Shown above: 'Firewitch' dianthus
Add some flower power to your garden this year with any of these tough-as-nails perennial bloomers. No green thumb required!
Blanket flowers are wonderfully cheerful, long-blooming plants for hot, sunny gardens. They produce single or double daisy flowers through most of the summer and well into fall. The light brick red ray flowers are tipped with yellow -- the colors of Mexican blankets. Blanket flowers tolerate light frost and are seldom eaten by deer. Deadhead the flowers to keep them blooming consistently through the summer and into fall. Some species tend to be short-lived, especially if the soil is not well drained.
One of the longest bloomers in the garden, hardy geranium bears little flowers for months at a time. It produces jewel-tone, saucer-shape flowers and mounds of handsome, lobed foliage. It needs full sun, but otherwise it is a tough and reliable plant, thriving in a wide assortment of soils. Many of the best are hybrids. Perennial geraniums may form large colonies.
Bring a note of the tropics to your garden with the bold, colorful, strappy leaves of New Zealand flax. They are excellent as container plants that can be overwintered with protection, but in warm areas, they're spectacular planted directly in the ground. Flower panicles may reach 12 feet tall in some selections with red or yellow tubular flowers. Blooms only appear in mild climates, but there they attract many species of birds. If space is limited, check out dwarf forms. While New Zealand flax is a popular perennial in frost-free areas, it's becoming more and more loved in northern regions, where it's treated as an annual.
Garden favorites, including shrub roses, sedum, and daylily combine in this delightful garden that provides lovely flowers all season long.
Valued for its unusual flower shape, blazing star sends up erect spires of usually magenta, sometimes white flowers. Emerging from grasslike foliage, the blooms make a dramatic statement in flower gardens with other perennials, annuals, or even shrubs. Well-drained but moisture-retentive soil is a must for this prairie native.
Perennials are the anchor of any fall garden. See fall perennial flowers and plans that will power your garden through the first frost.

Buy Wholesale - As Low As $4.88 Per Plant - White flowers with a ruffled golden edge. Flowers early midseason and again in late su...mmer-early fall. Semi-evergreen foliage. Flower size: 5". Add a perennial home improvement—plant daylilies! Vigorous, carefree and colorful, these daylilies have been developed for their vibrant, long-lasting color. We have indicated which varieties are evergreen, semi-evergreen and dormant. An evergreen variety's foliage will remain and the plant will not go into a dormant stage, which makes it more susceptible to damage from frost. A light mulch on top of the foliage will protect the plants from this damage. Semi-evergreen varieties will lose some of their foliage and will go into a dormant stage, and usually do not require any mulching. The hardiest daylilies are those varieties that go completely dormant during the winter. read more
