With the proper selection of perennials, you
can enjoy color and beauty beginning in spring
and continuing all summer long, right up to the
first killing frosts of fall. For the longest
possible perennial display, we have created this
ideal Three-Seasons Garden with a blending of
nine varieties of easy-to-grow perennials. While
the garden illustrated occupies a 5' x 15' area,
these same perennials can be arranged to fill
any 75 sq. ft. area with color and beauty.
In this Three-Seasons Garden, Astilbe, Delphinium
and Achillea start the show in late spring; Pink
Coneflowers, Little Miss Muffet Daisies and Clustered
Bellflowers take over during the summer months;
Jacob Cline Monarda, Cloth of Gold and Lemon Fluff
carry color into fall.
