1. Hellebore

What a strong, beautiful woman! One of the first perennials that bloom from spring to fall are hellebores. The huge blossoms, which resemble bowls or saucers, are delicate and beautiful. White flowers with bright pink, yellow, or red patterns bloom. Hellebores thrive in areas with light shade and are resistant to cold and wildlife.

2. Virginia Bluebells

Woodland gardens are brightened by the sea of bell-shaped blue flowers that Virginia bluebells produce in the spring. These plants practically disappear after they bloom, so surround them with other perennials to provide color even after they fade. They are the perfect match for other spring-blooming bulbs, such as daffodils.

3. Viola

When conditions are ideal, this smaller relative of the pansy can produce multitudes of tiny, delicate perennial flowers that bloom from spring to fall. Blooming in a variety of hues, violas might be white, blue, purple, yellow, or any combination of these. They give window boxes and spring container gardens a pop of color. Since violas are deadly heat-lovers, it is preferable to put them in a position that is protected from the afternoon sun. Their edible blossoms provide color and interest to salads.

7. Baptisia

This native prairie wildflower blooms beautifully. Baptisia plants, also called false indigo, are large, 3–4 feet tall and wide.

8. Perennial Geranium

The geranium plant, which is an annual, is not the same as the hardy perennial. Perennial geranium blooms are a vibrant accent to the front of perennial borders, blooming for several weeks in shades of pink, purple, blue, and white. These perennials are excellent bed-edging plants since their foliage also forms neat, low-growing mounds. Perennial geraniums are relatively easy to grow and often take on lovely fall colors.
