The perennial garden category is the rose, but also the tulip, lily and hyacinth, hydrangea, peony and gladiolus. Perennials are also the snowflakes and snowdrops. Some bloom in the first year after planting, others only in the second year of life when they reach maturity (rose, hydrangea, lily). The good part in their case is that they do not need to be replanted; the less good part is that the flowering period is usually short-lived. The solution is to combine them so that you can enjoy flowers in the garden all the time.
