I can’t imagine my garden without perennials it’s because they come back year after year and they’re more or less a main stay. And they’re such a wide range of bloom and foliage.
I’m a hopeless collector of perennials, I’m always picking up new ones at the nurseries or even ordering them through the mail like I did this little bluebeard or caryopteris. The fall is an ideal time to plant perennials and if you’re tired of the way your garden looks and you need to make changes it’s also an excellent time to transplant them.
You see this time of the year even though the air temperature is cooler and brisk, the soil temperature is still warm, and it’s the perfect environment for many of these roots to reestablish themselves.
I’ve actually found that many of these plants seem to perform better when planted in the fall. Such as Pianese, all of true lilies like Asiatic and oriental highbreds and in milder climate even daylilies and iries.
This time of year can pay off to visit your local nurseries. Often you can find robust perennials that have been grown all summer long and outgrown their containers at bargain prices. Just a little tip for the thrifty shopper, once I get these guys in the ground all I have to do is mulch them in, with this done I feel like I’m a step ahead of the game it’s just one last thing I’ll have to worry about in the next spring when the paste in garden really picks up. From the garden I’m Allen Smith.
