Perennial Giants

Who doesn't love big plants. Giant perennials can take the place of a shrub in your garden. They are not only useful in your gardenscape but are fun to grow. Bound to give the kids an interest and a thrill.

    A couple of Hometalk members have shared photos of their Gunnera, a plant that always gets attention. In my New York garden, Joe Pye weed was my giant, easily getting 10 feet high each summer.

    Heather, Joe Pye can certainly be divided. I would do so in early spring, just as you start to see growth.

    Yes indeed Heather. It divides beautifully and is a very strong, hardy plant. I agree with Douglas, spring is the best time.

    I enjoy them too, every year the suppliers nicely introduce a new variety or two for us!
