Full Sun Garden Plan- About this Garden We've selected some of our favorite easy-growing perennials. This collection will produce colorful flowers and foliage from spring to fall -- and keep the maintenance at a minimum.
Ranunculus Purple (Purple Persian Buttercups) - Royal purple roses have big 3" - 4" blooms – and a single bulb can produce dozens of flowers! Ravishing perennials, they grow 10-15" tall. Where winters are mild (zones 8-11), plant ranunculus bulbs in Fall for early spring flowers. Good container plants.
"Six Easy to Grow Flowering Plants." Can't wait til the spring flowers start showing up in the nursery! I'll probably pick up some purple coneflowers and black-eyed susans. Interestingly enough, salvia always seems to show up on these "easy" plant lists, but is determined to hate me, heh.
The Best Perennials for Your Yard: 1997 perennial plant of the year 'May Night' Salvia is by far one of my favorites. A true show stopper!

Growing Conditions: Full sun and well-drained soil Size: To 1 foot tall Zones: 3-7
