What’s Your Favorite Perennial?

Gardening season is upon us! I’m relatively new to perennials, since I just started growing them when we moved into our house.  I have a few favorites, but I’m dreaming of adding in another perennial garden somewhere in our vast expanse of lawn (untreated, diverse lawn).  Ed’s dead set against it, since he’s a fan of easy mowing.  It probably won’t be this year, but a girl can dream.

My favorite perennials are blue hydrangeas and pink peonies.  The hydrangeas are so full of blooms all summer long (variety: Endless Summer) and the peonies are gorgeous for just a short period of time.  Both are incredibly easy to care for, which makes them even better! Here are some pictures from last year’s garden to bring back memories…
