Flowering Perennials Make Excellent Flower Gardens

Wildflowers make great additions to anyone's flower gardens. Wildflowers are tried and valid species that have stood the test of time and remain popular. Below are four popular wildflower species used in modern landscaping and flower beds. Pick your favorites and enjoy their timeless beauty.

The Flowering Perennial: A Sight For Sore Eyes!

For a colorful domesticated wildflower with unique leaves and blossoms, look at the Columbine. The Columbine, or aquilegia, remains an easy-to-grow perennial plant that blooms in the spring. Many columbines appear as purple bells with white spikes, though many other color combinations exist. The light to medium green leaves turn purple as the growing season ends.

Columbine plants prefer well-drained soil and moderate water. Mulching the plant keeps it from drying out too quickly. They don't like hot, direct sun, so plant it in an area that gets shade during the day, especially in southern climates. While aquilegia plants remain short-lived for perennials, they readily self-seed to continue providing your landscape with delicate blossoms.

Virginia Bluebells

Virginia bluebells, or Mertensia virginica, is a herbaceous perennial that grows wild throughout North America in zones three through eight. This gorgeous, bright blue flower spike grows best in partial or complete shade. Showy flowers bloom in the early spring from March to April. Numerous loose, pendulous blue bells hang from a two-foot-tall spike. Initially, the buds for each bloom appear pink but turn blue as the flower matures. Bluish-green leaves that are four inches long ornament the plant. Once the bluebell has bloomed and the weather gets hotter, the plant goes into dormancy until the following year. So plant bluebells with annuals or perennials that cover the area once the bluebell season is over.

As with many wildflowers, the plant is disease- and pest-resistant.

The Virginia blue bell flower grows readily in average, well-drained soils but prefers rich, moist dirt.

Dutchmans Breaches

Dutchman Breeches (Dicentra calceolaria) are herbaceous perennials that grow to about eight inches tall. The grey-green leaves resemble rosettes and grow to about six inches in width. Each leaf is divided into three secondary leaves with oblong lobes. At the center of the leaf rosette, a raceme of from two to six pairs of white flowers develops. This raceme of this plant tends to bend to one side, and the flowers droop upside down. Each flower is about ¾ an inch long and resembles an upside-down pair of Dutchman's breeches. Two white outer petals and two inner pale yellow petals make up the shape of the flower.

Dutchman breeches bloom from the early to middle of spring. This beautiful and unique flowering plant prefers partial sun with loamy soil.
