Perennials

   

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.
