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
Masterwort has a flower like no other, delicately colored and with a shape that has been described as both a pincushion and dustmop. This cottage charmer grows best in cool climates -- it struggles in the South. The domed flower clusters bloom atop wiry branched stems. White, rose, and pink flowers can occur in the same planting from self-sown seedlings.
Enjoy flowers every day from spring to fall with our guide to perennial flowers by bloom season.
This native perennial gets its name from the shape of its unusual flowers, which resemble the heads of snapping turtles. It's a good choice for heavy, wet soils and spreads to form dense colonies of upright stems bearing pink, rose, or white flowers from late summer into fall. It grows best in some shade, but tolerates full sun with adequate moisture.
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.
Add some flower power to your garden this year with any of these tough-as-nails perennial bloomers. No green thumb required!
Anemones are lovely, delicate flowers that dance atop slender stems, giving them their poetic common name -- windflower. Depending on the type, anemones bloom in spring, summer, or through fall with pretty, slightly cupped flowers in rose, pink, or white rising over distinctive, deeply lobed foliage. Plants grow best in partial shade but tolerate full sun in Northern regions. If you're lucky, they'll be happy where they're planted. In some cases, you may even need to divide plants frequently to prevent them from overtaking neighboring perennials.
Perennials are the anchor of any fall garden. See fall perennial flowers and plans that will power your garden through the first frost.
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.
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.
