Choice of types and position of perennials


For the success of a garden we will complete the flowerbeds as well as with trees and shrubs with perennial plants that have the function of cheering with staggered blooms our green space. There will be more compact essences, while others will be more conspicuous, but all will give our green area a perpetual re-flowering from year to year. It will be our good sense to recreate the ideal conditions and choose the most suitable exposures for each absence to allow plants to live in the best conditions. In these compositions, we will place in sunny positions herbs with stringy stems among which we can remember the stipa, the carex, the fescues the penisetum with their rich flowering of ears, calamagrostis and miscantus. We have varieties with more showy and roundish leaves such as sedum, bergenie, iris and stacis and then others that we will plant for a strong flowering, such as hemerocallis aster, oenottera and some varieties of phlox and verbena. The needs for this type of plants are few, but important: avoid excess water and fertilizing to leave the plant with its natural appearance. Furthermore it is good not to place them in too heavy and compact soils. These plants prefer sunny positions, however there are also varieties or species that bear the scarce brightness or partial shade, among which stand out the hostas, the ferns and the liriope.
