My favorite quote of the day comes from our HGTV Gardening Editor, Marie. She put it perfectly when she said, “Honestly, what could be better than a plant that comes back year after year, blooming its head off with little input from you other than having planted it?” It’s so true. When you have a variety of perennials blossoming at different times year-round, all the work of maintaining color in your garden is pretty much done for you. And with sweltering heat blanketing much of the country, who wouldn’t want to sit back and enjoy their garden rather than sweating while digging in the dirt?
