Perennial flowers are a great choice because they can be replanted year after year if you take care of them. We have some ideas for perennials that work in many situations and are great for landscaping.
We are so impressed by the beauty of perennials in landscaping that we asked Hoffie Nursery for an update. They shared their top picks and suggested some new flowers that can be used to add bright colors to your yard. Hoffie Nursery has some new favorites perennials.
