Perennials: a must-have for your garden!

With perennials, you can turn any garden into a living garden. A garden where there is always something to see, something moving and almost always something blooming. There are wonderful perennials available for even the most difficult spots in the garden. And the best thing is: they will come back every year!

From Aquilegia to Zephyrlily

There is an incredible variety of perennials available, but which one should you choose? If your garden is sunny, you have the most choice, as many perennials are true sun worshippers. But even for a “difficult” border in the shade, there is more choice than you would expect, for example, barrenwort (Epimedium) and various ferns.

To fill or not to fill?

If you want a garden with sleek lines, you can plant sections with one or a few varieties. If you prefer a wilder style, you can go all out with filler plants, such as vervain (Verbena bonariensis), sage (Salvia) and white gaura (Gaura). These plants are casually dotted in between the other plants. It will require a little more intuition, but the results will no doubt be very attractive. And very natural, to boot!

Tip! If you suddenly come up with an even better combination later on, it is perfectly fine to move perennials in autumn.

From grey to green

Perennials are much more than just beautiful. When you plant your garden (instead of using tiles), you also make it climate proof! Rainwater can soak into the soil much more easily in between the plants, so summer downpours are not a problem. The plantings also help cool the garden on summer days, like a natural air conditioner.

Tips & facts

  • Vary with colours, shapes and flowering times, to provide long-lasting food (nectar) for bees, butterflies and other useful insects.
  • You can also plant perennials in pots and containers. A great idea for brightening up a dull patio, balcony or façade garden.
  • If you enjoy picking flowers from your own garden, choose perennials that are particularly suitable for this purpose, such as yarrow (Achillea), Aster, sunflower (Helenium), coneflower (Rudbeckia) and flowering ornamental grasses.
