These ten perennial plants will be ideal for a sunny spot in the garden where they will provide summer color for year after year.

The ten sun-loving perennials are described in an article which I found on the Bless My Weeds website.

You gotta love perennials. They’re the “set it and forget it” of gardening. Plant them one year, and you’ll be able to enjoy them for many years to come, just like clockwork. Got a sunny garden spot that needs some color? Don’t want to re-plant your flowers every year? Try these 10 perennial flowers that love the sun. They’ll add gorgeous hues every summer without all the work.

1. Beardtongue

The flower with the strangest name sometimes has the prettiest blooms. In zones 5 to 9, beardtongue is known for tubular blossoms and talk stalks. Once established, they don’t need a lot of water.

2. Delphinium

These gorgeous blue cone-shaped perennials are sure to add the wow factor. Delphinium does well in zones 3 to 9 and attracts butterflies.

3. Coneflowers

Similar to and often mistaken for daisies, coneflowers have that signature ball-shaped center and petals that hang just slightly downward. They work well in zones 3 to 9, and are fairly drought tolerant.
