Perennial Flowers

These are the flowers you plant once and they come back every year…bringing you more and more flowers each year. The rest is simple maintenance. I find that these are the most wonderful flowers to grow because they’re just so easy and rewarding. And the selection of what you can grow is huge.

These are the flowers that you need to plant every year, though some will reseed on their own. Being annual means they grow from seed, flower, develop seeds, and die in one year. While perennials are my favorite, there are so many annuals you won’t want to miss.

Please~ have fun growing your own cutting flowers!!


I’ve been a semi-professional flower grower. I’ve learned by reading, doing, and learning from other flower growers. I’ve sold my flowers at farmer’s markets, in stores, and I’ve sold my wreaths and dried flowers at craft fairs and small markets. See my About page for how I fell in love with flower gardening. I hope you will too!
