Perennials are beautiful plants that bloom and breathe new life into any surrounding. Unlike annuals, they don’t have to be ripped up and replanted each and every spring. Here are a few lovely perennial flowers that’ll bring life to your home year after year, with very little maintenance!

Valerian

Valerian is a plant better suited in garden beds since it can grow up to five or six feet tall. It has fragrant flowers that are highly fragrant and definitely pleasing to the nose. It has beautiful little flowers that sprout atom thin stems ranging from white to pale pink.

Peonies

These are great for the garden beds or larger container planters, and have incredible longevity. They are spectacular for putting on a good show, with their large four to six-inch fragrant flowers and glossy green foliage. With full sun and good soil, peonies will make your garden or porch the talk of the neighborhood.

Chocolate Cosmos

Another lovely showstopper for almost anywhere in your garden is the deep and stunning Chocolate Cosmos. At up to 3 feet tall and around a foot wide, these flowers are great for garden beds, containers, borders, and just about anywhere else you can think to put a plant. They, as their name implies, have a strong aroma of dark chocolate, and deep, nearly-black centers. Chocolate cosmos are always a hit with garden enthusiasts!

These, along with many others, are excellent options for low-maintenance beauty that will last you all year. Perennial flowers are also an excellent option to help save money overall on your gardening costs since they don’t need to be repurchased every season or every year.
