Which Perennials Should You Choose for Your Florida Yard?

In this area of Florida that includes Palmetto, Parrish, and Bradenton, we are blessed with a great climate where many different types of plants can grow and thrive. That means there are several choices for you to consider when looking at installing new landscaping or renovating your existing landscaping beds. At Three Seasons, we can supply or install plants for your landscaping needs.

Here is a guide to commonly used perennials in our area so that you can read through and choose which perennials you’d like to use for your Florida yard.
