Top 10 Perennial Flowers That Are Easy to Grow

The plants on this list are described as most beautiful perennial flowers that are perfect for any garden—especially if you’re a beginner. That is because they have been chosen both for their looks and the fact that they are low maintenance and easy to grow. After the top ten you will discover a further sixteen perennial plants on this list which I found on the Better Homes and Gardens website.

Here’s an easy-grow collection of the best, most beautiful perennial flowers that are perfect for any garden—especially if you’re a beginner!

Blanket Flower

Blanket flower (gaillardia) is a drought- and heat-tolerant perennial wildflower that provides long-lasting color in a sunny border with poor soil. In red, gold, or brown, its daisy-like, 3-inch wide, single or double perennial flowers bloom through the summer and into the fall. Although often short-lived, it is easy to grow and will flower the first year from seed.

Veronica

The 7-inch spikes of veronica bloom atop 12- to 24-inch plants in shades of blue or red from early summer through fall. In the North, veronica prefers sun, but it likes a bit of shade in the South. Plant these perennial flowers at the front of the bed.

Tall Garden Phlox

 Phlox paniculata — garden, tall, or border phlox — grows 3 to 4 feet tall and bears large trusses of fragrant perennial flowers from summer to early fall. It’s an old-fashioned favorite that has few rivals for its color display and light, sweet fragrance. It’s well suited to the back of the garden and cottage gardens.

Russian Sage

Suited to larger gardens, this 3-foot-wide by 5-foot-tall perennial creates clouds of blue flowers in late summer. Russian sage likes sun, and is tolerant of drought and heat. Plant these perennial flowers at the back of the bed and give it room to grow.
