Perennials Amy Jo Detweiler
Perennial plants that live for 2+ years once mature they flower annually
Herbaceous non-woody plants that die back and go dormant in winter
Perennial lifespan depends on type of plant, soil, climate, care, etc.
Perennial types: ground covers biennials border plants rock/alpine plants
Perennial types: herbs bulbs ornamental grasses water plants ferns
Planning & Design research visit nurseries, gardens neighbors consider time
Planning & Design yourself/professional consider site environment
Stats for The Dalles USDA Hardiness Zone 6-7 microclimates/frost dates annual precipitation ~ 14” soils – sandy loam/silty loam climate summary at
Design principles balance contrast repetition harmony unity dominance
Design Elements color texture flower fragrance
Design Elements bloom time seasonal interest function mature size
Formal Design symmetrical shaped beds straight lines
Informal Design asymmetrical shaped beds free-flowing beds
Low Maintenance non-invasive resistant sturdy stems adaptable short/long life span
Do a design sketch out use a garden hose consider hydrozones
Site considerations soil sun/shade wind bed/border existing features viewpoint
Plant material nurseries, greenhouse seeds neighbors mail order
Soil provides nutrients improves aeration address drainage concerns
Soil add organic matter 1/2-1/3 improve water holding capacity
Prepare the hole twice as wide as container, same depth amend with soil
Containers check out roots avoid planting dry root balls
Following planting water new plants in well irrigation type root stimulant optional mychorrhizae
Watering plants water deeply less often avoid water on foliage once established, as needed
Irrigation Test dig down 6-8” ball up soil
Using Mulch reduce weeds/weed cloth prevents desiccation prevents erosion
Using Mulch covers bare ground 2-5” deep types
Maintenance fertilization weeding cutting back transplanting dividing
Maintenance winter watering ? pest management reapply mulch as needed
Fertilizing avoid direct contact with the roots wait for establishment increase the amount of nutrients available to the plant
Fertilizing spring feeding avoid late summer, early fall feedings slow-release, phosphate
Weeding weed cloth mulch within a bed
Cutting back encourage repeat bloom promote new growth control size
Transplanting in spring or fall redesigning mislocation
Why divide? decline in vigor becomes invasive for propagation
How to divide every 3-5 years early spring, late summer dig around drip line avoid root damage
Propagation seeds stem cuttings root cuttings grafting(advanced)
Seeding light soil moisten soil sprinkle seeds cover with thin layer of soil repot when larger
Stem cuttings in morning cut 3-5” remove bottom leaves dip in hormone place 1/2-1/3 in soil clear plastic
Root cuttings 1/4’+ wide roots, 3-4” long when plant is dormant plant upright when growth is seen transplant
Other uses cut flowers dried flowers
Maintenance of Landscape Maintain newly planted plants in a given environment Prune ornamental plants to maintain an attractive landscape.
