Sunny Spot Perennials
Sunny Spot Perennials Add Color to your Landscape Year after Year!
Sunny spot perennials are the headline of any great garden. We’ve picked out a few of our favorites to help you find the perfect flower for your garden.
Daylilies are one of the easiest sunny spot perennials to grow nationwide. You can guarantee faithful blooming for years by purchasing these diverse flowers. There are all sorts of specific daylily variants you can find at our shop, and each has a distinct look that’s sure to please. Daylily blooms live for just one day, but each flower stem has at least a dozen flowers, ensuring that they’ll stay in bloom for weeks. By choosing early, mid and late blooming daylilies, you will have flowers blooming throughout the summer. Daylilies prefer moist, yet well drained, soil and full sunlight. Aside from their beauty, the best part about planting daylilies is how easy they are to care for. They’ll keep coming back each year without any work. Just add fresh compost each spring.
Coneflowers are bright perennials that look like daisies with raised centers. These are very hardy flowers, being quite resistant to drought. They’ll also draw bees and butterflies to your garden. And don’t worry about deer gnawing away at these flowers. They’ll steer clear of coneflowers and other nearby plants. Some variation’s stalks can reach up to 5 feet in height and rarely bend or require staking. Coneflowers require full sunlight for at least six hours each day and prefer lean soil. Rich and heavily amended soil may result in poor flowering. You can find all different colors of coneflowers, so there’s sure to be a type that fits your yard.
Coreopsis will give you color that lasts all summer long. They come in primarily yellow, but also in red, pink and white. Many have dark brown or maroon centers. Growing these colorful perennials is extremely simple. Just place the seeds into unamended soil in full sunlight. Coreopsis seeds require sunlight to grow, so cover them lightly with soil or perlite. The seeds should germinate in 21 days. Once Coreopsis begin to flower, simply remove any deadheads to promote new flowering. These make for truly classic sunny spot perennials.
Salvia are long lasting flowers that will attract butterflies and other pollinators. Salvia, better known as Sage, come in several variations and colors but most species within the genus contain rapid growth and heat resistance. The unique scent given by salvia make them a popular choice among growers. Salvia smell like pineapple, other fruit, or spice sage, adding a unique appeal to your garden. They grow best in sunny or partly sunny locations for most varieties. Although there are very few, some Salvia do prefer full shade, so be sure to know what your plant will prefer. Salvia require slightly more care than other perennials. They want time-release fertilizer to encourage flowering spikes and need to dry out between waterings. Removing spent blooms encourages new blooms that will ensure your salvia provide flare to your garden from spring through fall.
