All About

Plants like scabiosa, wallflower and hardy mums typically last three to five years. Other perennials like blanket flower, columbine and coreopsis are equally short-lived but reseed freely. Still others are long timers; such garden stalwarts include bearded iris, daylily, hellebore, astilbe and bee balm, to name a few. Peonies, above, are extremely enduring, sometimes lasting for more than a century. Get a list of long- and short-lived perennials.
