WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT A PERENNIAL GARDEN?
Plant once and your done! Perennials are easy, long lived, and make gardening a true delight - a real joy in anyone's life.
During the growing season, Wolf Hill has a collection of herbaceous perennials, ground covers, and winter hardy bulbs available. Growing availability and the blooming season play a key role in which items we stock and when.
Please ask if you're looking for a specific variety and we'll do our very best to get it for you.

WHAT"S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ANNUAL & A PERENNIAL?
An annual completes its life cycle in 1 year; it goes from seed to flower then dies. Annuals are used to bring bright color and immediate satisfaction to the garden.
Annuals are great for container plantings because you can change what goes into the container year after year.
A perennial can survive year after year. Perennials die back to the ground in the winter however remain alive at the crown where the plant meets the soil.
Perennials are great for borders and to be used amongst foundation shrubs for color throughout the season.
