Can I plant perennials during the summer?

Ideally, perennials should be planted in spring or in the fall, but you can have success planting them in the summer. They will have more stress from the heat, strong sun and low water, but with your help they will establish themselves.


Shade Lovers

Some perennials do well in sun, but these thrive in the shade. Add these pops of color to bring life to shady spots in your garden.

What is a 'Hardiness Zone' and which one do we live in?

The USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is divided into 13 main zones. Beginning with Zone 1, each subsequent zone is 10 degrees warmer in an average winter than the one before it.

Where we are located in Maryland, we are in Zone 7.


Deer Resistant


We all know the struggle of having beautiful garden full of flowers and then having those flowers turn into a buffet for deer. Plant these deer resistant perennials alongside other perennials to help prevent deer from eating your whole garden.
