Perennial Plants for Sun

Perennial Plants for Sun

Colorful, carefree flowers that love life in the sun

Sun-loving perennials thrive when planted in the full, hot sun. While other plants may suffering fading blooms or scorched leaves in direct sunlight, these perennials will love every minute of the bright, unfiltered attention! Be sure to provide a minimum of six hours of sun to see these flowers at their best, and know that the more sun you can give them, the bigger, healthier, and happier they will be.
