Every single yard, whether residential or commercial, can benefit from the proper placement of perennials. Perennials can be defined as flowers and blooms that continue to come back, year after year. They can be used in a variety of situations to add color, fragrance, and beauty to your home or office exterior.
In the Chicago area, perennials will typically bloom from early spring to late fall, depending on the variety. Some bloom only for a few weeks in the early spring, and others may bloom for several continuous weeks in the summer. Most will lie dormant through the winter, though, which means they will appear dead. In fact, the foliage itself does die, but the root continues to thrive – even when the ground freezes. When properly maintained, these plants will come back to life after a winter nap once the roots can start taking in water and nutrients. They will provide color, fragrance, and appeal season after season.
Some of the most popular perennials in this climate come in a variety of colors and styles that can ensure there’s something in bloom all spring, summer, and fall.
Perennials can require little to no maintenance, or they may require your constant attention, especially if they can reseed themselves and grow unchecked.
