The term perennial is reserved for plants that live for more than two years. Horticulturists further classify them into woody and herbaceous perennials. Woody perennials are those who's above ground parts persist over winter. Herbaceous perennials are non-woody plants that die back to the ground each winter. The roots survive the winter and the plants re-sprout in the spring. This collection is the herbaceous type, which make them high value plants that will return for years to come with little to no effort.

Plant in the spring after danger of frost has passed. Soil preparation: The ideal soil is porous and drains well and yet still holds enough water for the roots. If your soil is heavy clay and drains slowly, or very sandy and does not hold water, add organic soil amendments (peat moss or ground bark). Spread a 3-4" layer of soil amendment, add fertilizer and incorporate together into the soil to a depth of 10". To plant: Dig a hole 4-6" deep in a full sun to partially shaded area, in a well drained location. Space the plants 4-6" apart. Cover with soil. Water thoroughly at planting. While actively growing, water frequently and thoroughly so that the water will reach the roots. Mulch to keep the soil cool and to prevent the soil from drying out. Do not allow the roots to dry out.
The plants require little maintenance as long as they are planted properly and establish themselves.
