Title

Perennials are plants that grow back from their roots year after year. They are a very popular category of plants grown in Southern Alberta. Perennials typically begin their growth cycle early in spring and flower in late spring or into the summer. Perennials return for many years and can range from shade to sun loving varieties.

We carry a wide selection of perennial flowers, ferns and grasses. The listing (below) shows our most common plants, but throughout the season more and different varieties may become available depending upon suppliers. Please drop in and see what's new.
