Perennials play an important role in our native landscape. They contribute to a variety of aspects in the environment such as:
Food and shelter for wildlife
Discouragement of invasive species
Reduced usage of water, fertilizers and special treatments
They are aesthetically beautiful, although underused in the landscape. Planted in drifts they can take on the look of a meadow; or groupings in shaded areas can resemble a woodland understory; wet site plantings can enhance water filtration for ponds…your imagination is the limit!
