Perennial Plants

Perennial plants provide spring, summer and fall color and interest in the garden year after year. The nature of this type of plant is to grow and bloom throughout the growing season. They freeze back in the winter, only to emerge yet again in the spring.

After they freeze back in the winter, one must trim off the dead growth, usually almost to the ground, and wait for it to re-sprout in the spring. Perennial plants come in varying degrees of hardiness (the ability to survive the coldness of winter). Some will persist even in the harshest of winters, while others will be killed in a few nights of 25-30 degree weather. Perennial plants may include shrubs of various sizes, vines, and ground covers. Perennial plants usually have a lifespan of about 5 to 7 years. They are also a great way to attract hummingbirds, butterflies and other wildlife to the garden!

You will always find a great selection of perennials at The Garden Center during the growing season. Furthermore, all of our plants are hand selected for their ability to grow in the San Antonio area, many of which are heat and drought tolerant.
