The Best Perennials for Your Yard

Brunnera 'Jack Frost'

Another pinner said...Creeping Jenny comes back every year and keeps out the weeds. I love it in my flowerbeds, spreads. Great contrast color to plants and flowers.

'Silver Shimmers', (zones 4 to 9) is a stunner for shaded areas. This plant thrives in woodland conditions, with moist, rich, well-drained soil in shade, and grows 1 to 2 feet tall and wide. Give it a site with good air circulation, as some Pulmonaria are prone to mildew, though I've never seen it on this variety. It blooms blue in spring.

I really want to do this. Lavender Hidcote - This easy-to-grow sun perennial thrives in full sun normal garden soil. Plants vigorously grow to form mounds of fragrant, silvery foliage 18 tall 24 wide. This drought-tolerant hardy perennial has extremely fragrant foliage

Jack Frost Heartleaf

Jack Frost Brunnera. One of my favorite plants for a shady flower bed. Lots of beautiful blue blooms in late spring & early summer.

This beauty is another variety of coleus. Sun-tolerant coleus with patterned veins is easy to grow. It is an annual foliage plant that thrives in warm weather with moist soil conditions. You also can plant it in container gardens or landscape beds for season-long color. Most varieties can be grown in sun or shade, but often develop more intense coloration in bright light.

The Best Perennials for Shade

Hellebore (Helleborus), also called Christmas rose, is one of the earliest bloomers in shady gardens. Look for its burgundy, pink, cream, green, or white flowers in late winter or early spring. Although it looks delicate, the Christmas rose is quite sturdy once it gets established. And, it's deer- and rabbit-resistant. Hellebore grows best in Zones 4-8 and grows 12 inches tall.

Creeping Thyme: In early summer the plants are covered with stunning pinkish-rose flowers that last until the first hard frost. The stunning foliage stays all through the winter months. A very hardy perennial that attracts butterflies and can be grown throughout the country
