Perennial plants are garden staples, as they come back year after year. Perennials vary greatly in size, season, and care needs, and with thousands of perennials and perennial grasses available at Jolly Lane Greenhouse, you’re sure to find plants to suit your taste and perennial garden design, including deer resistant perennials.
Most perennials and perennial grasses are easy to care for, and flourishing plants can be divided for use in other beds. When choosing perennials, consider the adult height and span, to make sure vigorous plants won’t overcrowd smaller ones. Also consider the area that you will be putting them in and whether you need to get deer resistant perennials for your area.
Herbaceious perennials and flowering bulbs can be grouped by color, size, or time of bloom, depending on the overall effect you desire. To create a border bed, place the tallest plants in the back, with shorter ones in front. For an island bed, which can be viewed from all sides, place the tallest plants in the center.
Jolly Lane Greenhouse has a wide variety of perennials and perennials grasses available. For tips and advice on choosing or caring for perennials, including perennial grasses and deer resistant perennials, contact the staff at Jolly Lane Greenhouse and we’d be happy to help.
Emerald Ash Borer
While it’s important to take care of your flowers and garden, it’s vital to check on your trees as well. Many ash trees in North America have been affected by emerald ash borer (EAB), which is an exotic insect from Asia that attacks ash trees. There’s no known cases of EAB being in western South Dakota but it has been found in Sioux Falls. Jolly Lane Greenhouse encourages everyone to be aware of EAB and keep your eye on your ash trees. There are ways to treat and prevent emerald ash borer if or when it makes its way to this side of the state.
