Pretty perennials are easy and reliable

Last week we talked about colorful, low-water annuals for your containers. Now let’s discuss the benefits of water-wise perennials. They are low-maintenance, need little water, and, if properly established, won’t need to be replaced each season.

Water-wise perennials need more water during their first growing season to become established, but in following growing seasons require much less water. All the hardy, low-water plants listed below offer color and interest in the landscape and have low water needs once established.

Oenothera ‘Silver Blade’ evening primrose

Berlandiera lyrata chocolate flower

Gaillardia ‘Goblin’ blanket flower

WINDWALKER® royal red salvia

Salvia sylvestris May Night Meadow Sage

Rudbeckia hirta black-eyed susan

Artemisia frigida fringed Sage

Helianthus pumilus bush sunflower

If you’re not familiar with these varieties, do a quick Google search by name to see photos and learn more about each plant, or consult a landscape professional or garden center for help identifying the right perennials for your landscape.

Then relax and enjoy a landscape that is both beautiful and water-efficient!
