Perennials and Wildflowers

 

Perennials (the word “perennial” is the Latin term for “perpetual”) return year after year, growing in size and stature until they reach their full maturity. Most perennials disappear during the winter and grow up again in the spring (although some perennials remain green and even bloom during the winter months). There are, in fact, so many varieties of perennials that you are sure to find the perfect design selections for your garden.

 

Wildflowers are herbaceous plants that are native to a given area. Wildflowers may be annuals, perennials or biennials.

Grasses

 

Grasses are characterized by rounded, hollow or pithy jointed stems (culms), and narrow sheathing leaves with parallel veins. The leaves alternate on two sides of the stem. The junction of the blade and sheath often bears an erect fringe of hairs (ligule) and sometimes also earlike projections (auricles). Flowers are borne in reduced spikes (spiklets). Plants of the family Poaceae (Gramineae).

Vines

 

A vine is a plant with long stems (woody or not) which depends on other plants or surfaces for support. Vines may get that support by means of tendrils, by twining around another object, by attaching themselves with aerial rootlets, or merely by sprawling over a more rigid plant. Some vines in our area are Poison Ivy, Virginia Creeper, and Wild Grape.
