Perennials

There are thousands of known perennials that can be classified as a group of plants that live for more than 2 years. Often people use this term to distinguish a plant that has little to no woody growth like a tree or shrub. But technically, trees and shrubs are perennials too. Growing Colors™ offers a diverse group of perennials with more than a thousand varieties in multiple plug or bare root size options. They can grow from just a few inches tall to several feet and everything in between. Some prefer full shade and some full sun. Let us help you grow the right perennial program for your business. We ship year-round and can cater to your specific grower needs.

  • Raspberry - Rubus

    There are 2 types of Raspberries- summer bearing, which produce fruit in summer and everbearing, which produce fruit in the fall as well as summer.

    The first year after planting, all the flowers should be removed to allow the plant to build up reserves. From the second year on, the plants will flower in the spring and the Raspberries will ripen in the summer. Raspberry plants need adequate water and fertilizer in the spring and summer, but quantities should be decreased in fall to harden the canes for winter. In the winter the old flowered canes should be pruned to ground level.

     

  • Everbearing variety has same growth habit as Heritage. Large conical yellow-gold fruit is very sweet; will produce crops in early summer and early fall.
