15 Perennials You Need in Your Garden

Perennials or perennial flowers are flowers that come back after a year. They are often confused with annual flowers, which are one-season wonders that need to be replaced every spring. The benefit of having perennials in a garden is that they require little to no maintenance; once they’re grown they only require minimum pruning and pesticides.

According to the narrator in the video, there are three types of perennials: those that like shade, those that like sunlight, and those that function well with both conditions. This review will look at all three types of perennial flowers, including some examples of each.
