Easy to Grow Perennials

Easy to Grow Perennials

Easy growing flowers for beginning and busy gardeners

Easy to grow perennials are great for any gardener, especially the beginner. But even experienced gardeners can find themselves too busy for extra chores and maintenance some seasons, and will happily take advantage of working with plants that need less attention. The perennials listed here don’t need to be divided every year, tolerate a wide range of growing conditions, won’t take over the garden with aggressive spreading, and best of all, are known to bloom for a long time. A garden can be both beautiful and easy to care for!
