Perennials provide the majority of the plants used for so many garden styles, from a drought tolerant garden to a tropical garden or the traditional cottage garden. A perennial plant is one that comes back year after year and doesn't produce lasting woody material. Many perennials grow back from robust root systems. Other perennials produce creeping rhizomes dividing and multiplying as they creep along. Those perennials selected for the garden will produce a great show of flowers year after year during their season of glory. Perennials are often some of the heaviest blooming plants in the garden. Many perennials have fragrant foliage or fragrant flowers. Perennials are often selected for their bold foliage color or texture. Some perennial varieties require quite a lot of labor to be kept looking at their prime. The perennial border is one of the highest maintenance portions of the garden, but it can also be one of the most visually rewarding. I often try to mix my perennial garden so there is almost always something blooming. I have also been asked to focus a perennial border to look its best during a particular season. There are a host of perennial plants that are used for cut flowers, and others that are used for dried arrangements.

When I develop a perennial border I spend a lot of effort on preparing the soil. Since the plants are semi-permanent it is hard to go back and make it better later. Some folks like to double dig, personally I think this is torture to both the gardener and the shovel. A 6" thick dose of mulch covering the bed for 3-6 months will make the soil much more pliable. I like to get the rocks out, and to let the bugs and mulch do the rest of the hard work. Perennials produce lots of roots in the Fall. And they typically produce lots of flowers in the Spring. It is much easier to establish a perennial garden when the roots are the primary focus of the plant growth.

Many perennials are easily propagated by division. During the cooler months of Fall is the easiest time to make more of these beautiful plants. The perennials that spread by root and rhizome can be lifted and split, often into many new starts. In our area late November into December is when I think to do this. Other perennials can often be propagated by taking cuttings and rooting them in potting soil.
