Perennials are plants that survive most of our Southern Ontario winters. Perennials flower at specific times during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.
Perennials keep the gardening budget down and can create an opportunity to share with others. Perennials give you an established garden year after year. Many people are looking for less work planting on an annual basis. Perennials, planted once, can grow over many years, into a handsome bed of colour and structure.
It is important to plant according to flowering time, colour combination and plant height.
Explore our gallery of perennials at our Blooming Centre in Breslau, Ontario in the middle of Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph.

We’ve had many people asking us if they can still plant, and the answer is YES! The soil and air are still warm, giving the plants time to develop a strong root system before the winter freeze.
Perennials can still be planted until six weeks before the ground freezes, so you will likely still be able to plant for the next couple of weeks.
We have lots of sales on perennials, including an 80% off perennial clearance bench. Fill in thin areas, add some new colours and textures and plant early spring bloomers, including bulbs, which are currently on sale, 25% off.
