Quick Flower Guide to Easy Perennials

Daylily - Height: to 1 ½ to 3 ½ feet. Daylilies are terrific because they need no maintenance; they are very easy to grow. They can be planted in full sun or partial shade. You can divide them in late summer and fall, and replant them! They bloom in all colors except blue and white.

Geranium - Height: 6 inches to 1 ½ feet. This hardy perennial blooms in late spring and summer. Flowers are pink, magenta and purple. These make wonderful edging flowers. They require no special care, and do well in sun and partial shade. They even grow well in poor soil.

Hosta - Height: Up to 3 feet. If you have shady areas, hosta flowers are a perfect fit. The blooms are white, lavender or violet, and the foliage can be quite varied from solid green to yellow-gold. Some leaves are colorfully striped. Hostas are quite useful as ground cover under trees, in flower beds, and as edgings. These spring flowers can take hot, dry spells and can even survive poor soils. Locate Hosta flowers properly, and they'll last a lifetime.

Iris - Height: 6 to 50 inches. Irises are easy to grow and come in many varieties. The beautiful blooms of these spring flowers appear from spring to early summer and will brighten up any garden plans. The most common and hardy iris plant is the tall bearded iris. Their magnificent blooms like the full sun, and their only demand is moist, well-drained soil.

Shasta Daisy - Height: 1 to 4 feet. Need a season-long supply of flowering blooms? Shasta daisies are the perfect spring flowers.
