Populate Your Garden with Low Maintenance and Beautiful Perennials
If you are looking for a constant supply of near effortless colour and beauty in your garden, then perennials are most definitely your best bet. These plants will flower in your garden year after year without there being any need to replace them. It is also very easy to propagate perennials by dividing them into much smaller plants. Dividing a perennial is best done in winter when it is dormant. This will spread a lot of colour during every season throughout the garden.
Many people view their garden as life, and what is life without a dash of colour in it? Whatever your garden situation be it shady, moist, dry, sunny, shady, small or large, there are beautiful perennials that will complement your garden and highlight its best features. You will soon learn that the only difficult part is to make a choice from the very large number of attractive options available today.
Low Maintenance, Water-wise yet Beautiful Perennials that Will Bring Life to your Garden
If you are looking for a few water-wise and very low maintenance perennials that will breathe life into your garden, then consider these:
- Agapanthus: This perennial is indigenous to South Africa, and is available in white or blue blooms as well as in dwarf forms. It is by far one of the easiest plants to grow and can be planted in semi-shade or full sun and also makes for a very attractive summer display when planted in large quantities.
- Gaura: This easy to grow and beautiful white and pink butterfly-like flower is grown on tall stems of gaura. You can choose from the pale pink “Blushing Butterflies”, rose pink “Siskiyou Pink,” or the “Crimson Butterflies” soft pink variety. Other varieties also include soft pink and white. For best results, plant these in full sun.
- Osteospermum: This perennial will cover ground quickly and bears a lovely daisy-like flower. It flowers during late winter, autumn and spring and can be planted in a semi-shade spot. However, this flower will bloom best in full sun with moderate water throughout the year.
These are of course only a few of the many types of popular South African perennials. Day lilies have showy blooms that make their appearance from early summer to autumn. These annuals should be planted in large groups and in full-sun.
