Perennial flower gardening in the south, can be both rewarding and challenging. We have a long growing season that is wonderful for growing many different perennials, but our plants are often challenged by the heat of the summer and the wacky southern winters that can see temperatures go from the 70′s to the 20′s in less than twenty four hours.
Whether your flower garden is large or small or your plans involve a sunny bed or a shady woodland garden you will find that southern gardeners have a wide variety of easy to grow perennial plants to choose from to create a beautiful perennial garden.
Flower gardening, for that matter any form of gardening, is about more than simply sticking plants in the ground. It is about being bold and experimental and being willing to make mistakes. Beginning gardeners often worry about making mistakes, but the only way to learn to garden is by gardening.
