Sooty Sweet William

Perennials are so much to so many people. When people get tired of planting annuals each season, they turn to perennials to make their gardens come back stronger year after year. Nothing is quite so pleasing as watching well-rested perennials emerge from the warming soil in spring, or from the cooling, rain-moistened soil in fall. Keep them happy and they will bring you season after season of pleasure. This is a broad category, and really all of the plants we grow other than annual vegetables and herbs fit under it. This page, however, is dedicated to herbaceous perennials, or the soft fleshy sort, not the hard and woody sort. It is a big page with lots to see! Get your scrolling finger ready!

This page lists the perennials in our catalog by botanical name.
