Tried-and-True Shrubs & Perennials

30,116 Views
Over my gardening years plants have come and gone, but a few have proven themselves for the long-haul and get planted in every garden I've had. They include evergreens, flowering shrubs, and the toughest perennials that truly do come back every year.
These lists of my favorites are not unusual, hard to find, or expensive. I can't justify spending large amounts just to have the newest or most unusual plants. I look for beauty, longevity, and low initial cost all wrapped up in the easiest care possible. And these all fit the bill.

    Yes, to all but the beauty berry - sadly it doesn't grow very well here, even with our relatively mild winters it struggles.

    I can not wait for spring. I am getting my garden list ready now and have ordered some plants. I am so ready to get into the dirt. Hopefully, this will be our last snow. I am thinking positive.
