These perennials have a variety of different uses, including erosion control, rock gardens, wall hangings and more. We can’t get enough of these wonderfully weird and unique perennials and wanted to share a few of our favorite varieties with you.

 

Hens and Chicks

Been on Pinterest lately? Hens and Chicks are dominating the space with their perfect little rosettes of colorful leaves, being planted in mason jars, rock gardens and everywhere in between. These perennials are adaptable anywhere with full sun and well-draining soil. We recommend planting them in any container (get creative!) to be able to enjoy their stunning beauty up close.

Also known as Stonecrop, this amazing, easy-to-grow perennial is known for being drought tolerant and unstoppable in almost any sunny garden. Unique, textured foliage gives way to spectacular color in the fall months, making them a season-long staple in gardens from Maine to California.

Delosperma | Ice Plant

Well known on the West Coast, Ice Plantis a fabulous succulent that boasts bold, colorful blooms in the late spring. An evergreen in warmer areas, this perennial can be planted anywhere (even in the North!), as long as it has full sun and well draining soil. Ice Plant attracts pollinators and spreads rapidly, making it a low care, habitat friendly choice.
