As you probably know, perennials are flowers that come back every year.

Most of them are easy to grow from seeds, so this makes them quite cheap.

Not to mention you’ll have to pay only once every 5 years or so, which reduces the cost even more.

However, you should know that some perennials take a year or so to bloom. So if you want flowers for this year, you should focus on perennials that bloom in the first year.

In this article, we’ll focus on low-maintenance perennials. This means that you won’t have to take care of them that much.

But I promise they’re still gorgeous and colorful.

Gorgeous peonies bloom from late spring through early summer, and some have been known to live for over a hundred years!

Siberian Iris

This gorgeous, blue-purple plant loves the sun and moist, well-drained soil.

It blooms in May and should be planted in late summer/early fall.

You can also plant in spring, but then you’ll have to wait a full year to see it bloom.

Lily Of The Valley

Lily of the Valley is a beautiful, low-maintenance perennial, with a huge BUT.

It’s actually toxic and shouldn’t be planted in your garden if you have children or pets.

I’m not joking − DO NOT plant Lily of the Valley if you have children or pets. They might die.

That said, it’s that same toxicity that makes Lily of the Valley deer-resistant. They know it’s toxic and won’t eat them.

Lily of the Valley loves moist and shaded spots. Plant it in March for the best results.


Astilbes are colorful summer flowers that love the shade. But they’ll thrive even more if they have an hour or two of morning/evening sun in the day.

They like rich and moist well-drained soil, and are best planted in the spring or fall.

Astilbes are deer-resistant.


Coreopsis love the sun, and they will bloom best in full sun. Partial sun exposure is also good, but not ideal.

They like well-draining soil. Depending on the variety, you could plant them in dry or moist soil.

Plant them from early spring to fall, once the danger of frost has passed.


Daylilies are drought-tolerant, profuse bloomers.

They are available in many different colors and varieties.

Ideally, you’ll want to plant your daylilies in the spring or fall.

They love the sun, but if you live in a very warm climate then you should try to spare them from the afternoon sun.

It likes moist, well-draining soil.
