Long Blooming Perennials

Long blooming perennials are what most gardeners want for their flower beds, at least I do, and I know you want those long blooming perennial flowers also.

Some perennials bloom for an especially long time.

These long blooming plants are beautiful in themselves, but they are also valuable because they help keep your flowerbeds colorful, even though seasonal flowers come and go.

The list of perennial flowers below, bloom continuously for four to six weeks, or produce flower flushes of blooms off and on all summer and into fall.

Some plants, such as foxgloves, and some delphiniums, often bloom a second time if you cut them back after flowering.
