Eight Easy Perennials To Grow

 

 

Okay, let’s be honest with ourselves. Gardening can be hard, tiring work and it is great, but everyone needs a little bit of a break sometimes. So, here are some plants for “lazy gardeners,” if that even exists.

I like to think of these plants as easy for gardeners who need some peace and some time to relax from the craziness that gardening can be.

Here are the easiest perennials to grow when you need a break. Just plant and then sit back and relax.

  1. The yellow corydalis. This plant does great in the shade and had feathered foliage, kind of like a fern, with yellow flowers. It re-seeds itself where it pleases and flowers during the summer, which contributes to the light and fun feel. It likes dry conditions and gets to be about a foot tall and wide.

    Coral bells are another easy one for you! They also have so many color varieties, you could almost plant the whole rainbow in different shades. This is a great container plant. Coral bells get to be about a foot tall, and wide.

  1. Geranium “Rozanne” is next on the list. This perennial is great because they bloom purple flowers all summer, and deadheading is not required. They also have a mounding and trailing habit. It does a ton of work for you! It gets to be about a foot tall and eighteen inches wide.

  1. Plumbago is an amazing perennial for ground cover due to its indigo flowers that contrast beautifully with other colors. You can plant it beneath other plants, to add color contrast and because it acts as a mulch, keeping the weeds under control. It has a nice red color in the fall and gets to be about eight inches in length and width.

  1. Herbs are the next easy, great addition to the garden. Some of them, such as chives, flower and add an aesthetic aspect, and the others are great for cooking reason. Some great herbs to plant are chives, golden oregano, and thyme.

 

 

 

There are some great perennials that do most of the work for those of us “lazy” gardeners!
