What’s Bloomin’ Each Month?

Your gardening guide to light, height and season

Create a garden that blooms continuously during the growing season. Using the chart below, determine the light your garden will receive and then review our list of what blooms each month, by light preference and height. Then look for these plants in your local garden centers! Don’t be confused by the Latin names — your garden center will assist you in locating the plant you need.

With the right plant in the right place, perennials can give any garden constantly changing colors and textures.

We have created this tool to help you determine the perennials that are right for your garden. As you choose the links below in our chart, please note the designations for bloom times, re-blooming perennials, and height categories.

Bloom times roughly correspond to the months of the garden season beginning with March and going through October. Perennials can vary in bloom time from year to year by as much as two weeks, depending on weather conditions.

Longer bloom times have been designated by an asterisk (*). Each asterisk indicates an extra 2-4 weeks of bloom.

Re-blooming perennials are indicated by a ✿, as you see in the Iberis s. Autumn Beauty ✿ 

FULL SUN

Look for Northern Sunset Perennial labels with the sunny yellow background!

Full Sun Perennials are best suited for:

  1. Sun for most of the day
  2. All to mostly direct sun
  3. Usually a southern exposure
