PERENNIAL PHOTOS


With a few annuals thrown in



MALVA


TIARELLA - Foam Flower

Excellent ground cover, most of which spread by runners. Will tolerate rather deep shade. Likes a moist but well-drained soil.


TITHONIA


TOLMIEA

Another genus of one species. Sometimes semi-evergreen. Good for cool woodland gardens. Shade in well-drained neutral to acid soil. The one pictured is often called Piggyback Plant because it makes baby plantlets on the tops of the leaves which can be rooted for new plants.
Tolmeia


TOVARA

Sun or shade in fertile, moist soil. Fall flowering with sprays of tiny bead-like red flowers.

TRACHYSTEMON


TRADESCANTIA - Spiderwort or Snotweed

Fertile moist to dry soil in sun or partial shade. Self seeds and may become a bit invasive, though it is too lovely to avoid for that reason. Flowers in spring and usually sporadically throughout the growing season.


TRICYRTIS - Toad Lilies

Late summer and autumn-flowering perennials. Purple/white/spotted/orchid-like flowers. Light shade. Needs humus-rich, moist soil.


TRILLIUM - Wake Robin

Petals, sepas and leaves are all in whorls of 3. Excellent for woodland gardens. Full or partial shade and fertile, moist neutral to acid soil. Dormant after blooming.


TROLLIUS


UVULARIA

Spring flowering perennials that thrive in moist woodlands. Semi-shade and peaty soil. Pendant yellow bell-shaped flowers.


VANCOUVERIANA


VERBASCUM - Mullein

Summer flowering. Tolerates shade, but prefers an open, sunny site and well-drained soil.

Verbena bonariensis


VERBENA

Verbena prostrata Aztec Gold

Mostly summer flowering in full sun and well-drained soil.


VERONIA - Iron Weed

Veronica Sunny Border Blue

Yes, I know, it's a weed and I pull it out of the formal gardens, but I do love the color of the flowers.


VERONICA

Upright plants and ground covers. Sun and well-drained soil. Wide range of flower colors. Some spring blooming, other summer and fall.


VIOLA - Violets

Sun or shade in well-drained but moisture retentive soil.


YUCCA

Yellow Violet

Bold, sword-shaped leaves and tall spikes of flowers in early summer. Full sun is best but will grow in light shade. Well-drained soil.
