How to Take Care of Perennial Flowers and Sun Loving Perennials

Sun perennial flowers make the perfect addition to any garden or landscape. Planting instructions mostly depend on which variety of sun loving perennials you're growing, but most sun perennials have similar needs.

  • Sun perennials need at least six hours of direct light each day, and some varieties won't bloom if provided with less. Check your individual plant to see if it can withstand your zone's mid-day heat, and assess where the brightest sun hits your landscape.
  • Sunny perennials tend to need well-draining soil—most plants cannot survive having soggy roots. If your soil is heavy or compacted, use amendments such as peat and loam, and aerate the soil.
  • Most sun perennials require at least some regular watering, although some are quite drought-resistant once established. Remember that perennial flowers grown in planters and pots will need to be watered more frequently than ones in the ground.

    Do Sun Perennials Come Back Year After Year?

    Yes, sun loving perennial flowers will return year after year. Most sun perennials are cold hardy and bloom for years on end. These sun loving plants are low maintenance and easy to plant. With adequate care, your perennial flowers will come back year after year—these plants are truly an investment in your garden.

    Keep in mind that not every perennial plant is perennial in all zones. Some plants are cold-hardy in warm zones, but will not come back after an extremely frigid winter. Check your cold hardiness zone when buying sun perennials for far-northern gardens to ensure your varieties are cold-hardy.
