Hi! I am Suzann Harris, and I am talking about Sustainable Gardening. In this clip, I am going to cover Perennials and annuals. Now I love Perennials particularly but they are a lot more work than the larger shrubs. They will spread and need to be divided, if they get too big sometimes, they are short lived and also, they don't have the impact, that the larger shrubs have. It takes a lot more of them to cover your garden.
But here are some really easy great Perennials for shade. This lovely Columbine, is blooming right now. This is a Hellebore. It started blooming in January and as you can see, it still looks great. Hellebores look great all year.
Now what you are looking at now are some terrific Perennials for Summer. You see, the Golden Blooms are Black-Eyed Susans and then you see the large ornamental grasses and notice that they are planted in large sweeps and masses which not only looks great but it's actually less work that way.
Another really super summer blooming Perennial is the Sedum. I like Sedum, especially in pots even because pots need a lot more water but Sedum are very drought tolerance. So, I hardly have to water these at all.
Now I don't grow lot of Annuals myself. By definition they're only going to live the one growing season. They also tend to take a lot more watering and fertilizing. But here is a couple of that I really like. First this is a Petunia. This particular kind is called the Wave Petunia. It will continue blooming and so, guts out all season long and doesn't even require its dead blooms to be snapped off, which can be very time consuming.
So I love the Petunia and then this is a Sweet Potato Vine, with the terrific foliage. This will grow to about 25-feet long. So next, I'll show you how to plant all these plants.
