In this article you can get an answer to; where can I find information about planting bulbs, and perennials together? Perennials are basic flowers of any garden. Each year they die and renew themselves for next growing season. They are long-lived and last for many seasons. Perennials are also, historically, among our oldest plants.
They have been cultivated for centuries and often, as a result of breeding and crossbreeding, bear no resemblance to their wild forebears. In some of perennials, blossoms have become so specialized through centuries of cultivation that they no longer grow 'seeds.
Other perennials are continually being developed by amateur botanists and gardeners. As a result of this cultivation and inbreeding, perennials as a rule are not as hardy as other varieties. Another disadvantage is tendency of certain perennials to die down after flowering, thereby leaving gaps in garden.
There are a number of ways to solve problems of short-flowering periods and resultant unsightly spaces. One way is to intersperse them by planting bulbs and perennials along with annuals and flowering plants whose bloom occurs either later or earlier than that of perennials.
Some perennials are easy to transplant: chrysanthemums, for example, can be moved from one place to another with no noticeable effect on their vigor. This is another way to keep color and bloom throughout growing season.
A garden of perennials, either by themselves or mixed with annuals and other bulbs, should be placed along a path, or as a border, with a background of trees, shrubs, a wall or fence. The background shows brilliant coloring to best advantage. Some varieties can flourish in shade, such as anemone, lily of valley, day lilies, sweet pea, primrose, hollyhock, harebell and peonies, but these flowers must be chosen carefully and faced so that some sun reaches them every day.
