Plants of the Week

Perennial plant material

Perennial plant material are those plants whose stems are hollow. These plants, if planted in accordance with the proper hardiness (planting zone) requirements, will thrive in your garden every year. Most are typically cut back to the ground every late fall or early spring and return, like magic, to your garden more vibrant and healthier than the year before.
