Tips On Which Perennials To Plant For August & September

Greenway is renowned for their massive selection of butterfly and hummingbird plants – many of which are perennials, which means you don’t have to re-purchase them every year. Right now is the perfect time to plant them. Late summer and early fall is a great time to plant perennials as the the weather cools down and the soil stays warm for the roots to grow. Why not come out to Greenway and see our massive selection!
