: What are the best perennials for a long vase life? I live in zone 7 and my garden area is in full sun.
The ones that come to mind are daisies, carnations, mums, asters, phlox, baby's breath, heliopsis, zinnia, cosmos, alstromeria, yarrow, nigella, bachelor buttons, liatris, coneflower, Rudebeckia hertia Indian Summer, Eupatorium coelestinum, snapdragons, larkspur, perennial gypsophila, tulips (especially those that naturalize), daffodils, grape hyacinth, ammi magus and ammi visinga. That ought to keep you busy for a while. ;-)
