Since Heather and I just planted a bunch of extremely pretty perennials around our new home, I've finally been bit by the gardening bug. There are so many gorgeous perennials that bloom every single year, it's impossible to list all of them. Since I'm very much a novice gardener, I'm listing all of my top favorites, but I'd love for you to share all of your opinions on pretty perennials after hearing about mine, so we can all discover new flowers to plant!
1. The Prettiest Peonies
Peonies top my list of pretty perennials because they were the initial inspiration for all our planting. Our new house came complete with a gorgeous, mature bush that we've watched bloom into a beautiful pink profusion of fluffy flowers. Peonies last a long time and do well in a variety of climates. You'll likely find ants on your plants during their blooming season, because those industrious little insects help them blossom! Peonies also come in a variety of vibrant colors, but the brilliant pink ones are by far my favorites. They smell delightful as well, so feel free to make a bouquet!
