When the roses have finished their first flush and summer is nearing its end the garden can look a little care worn and past its best. But if you include some of these ten perennials in your planting scheme you will be able to enjoy brilliant colors until well into fall. I found an article by LuAnn Bransden over on the Houzz website which describes her choice of ten perennials to perk up your garden at this season.
When the dog days of summer get the best of your garden blooms, there?s still time to create a fetching landscape. Sure, you could head to the local garden center for mums, but if you want something less predictable, check out these no-fuss perennials that bloom with abandon ? often up to frost. You?ll get color now, plus repeat performances for many autumns to come.
