The answer is simple. You should neither look at the picture or read the description! The best way to choose perennials, is to visit gardens in your region. Once you are there, find the plants you like, take note of their size, their companion plants t and ask the owners if the selected plants are low maintenance perennials. Then you can go to the nursery and buy the plants you liked.
This process takes lots of time, and energy. If you want to find out immediately which perennials you should plant, this article is right for you!
After visiting gardens and having grown perennials for many years, we have created the perennial list you will find below. Each item in the list is a link to an article describing how to care for the perennial, how it grows in our garden, suggestions on which plants to combine it with, and sometimes stories related to the plant.
Our aim is to help you choose low maintenance perennials that will thrive in all gardens. To find out whether a perennial is worth growing, read the post. The low maintenance perennials are marked with the Amberway Approval.
The perennial list is constantly being updated with new perennial species and varieties.
