June is National Perennial Gardening month and an appropriate time to extol the virtues of these repeating blooming beauties.

For most parts of the US and Canada, your gardens are put to bed for the winter. The ground is quite cold; in fact, too frozen to plant anything and/or it is also snow covered.
