Perennial plant gardening success is determined by selecting the right plant for the right place – according to its native habitat. Designing and planting by habitat is a German ecological approach to combining perennials. Robust, low maintenance plants are selected and grouped according to their ideal growing situation. Start by identifying your garden’s growing conditions and pick plants that will thrive in these conditions. Mr. Herman will provide examples of the various habitats and illustrate perennial plant combinations suited to each one.
