Sun-Loving Perennials Gallery
As we all know, perennial plants are those that bloom perfectly during their growth seasons in spring or summer and would wilt to dormancy during winter. However, these plants will most likely sprout back to life during their active seasons through their rootstocks and these types are known as herbaceous perennials.
What’s nice about perennial plants is that most of them love the sun and would prefer to stay exposed all throughout the day, while some considerably cannot tolerate too much sun exposure but are otherwise reliant to a few hours sun bathing for their greenery and pigmentation and would likely need moist soil to survive. See our gallery of perennials that like shade as well.
Perennialss are important ornaments for non-shady and sunny locations like front yards and pathways, as these locations do not need distractive shading and coverings blocking the house’s view.
Some examples of these sun-loving perennials are artimisia, bearded iris and beardtongue, which we will give you further info below.
There are also self-seeding or self-sowing perennials plants that naturally grow in spring and summer without further efforts to cultivate them. Once spring or summer arrives, you will be amazed how they magically start to sprout out and cover the ground.
And as promised, here are a few of the best perennial plants you can grow outdoors. We have included some important requirements like the appropriate light and water they need as well as the best season and zones for these sun-loving foliage.
