Horticulture: Herbaceous Perennials

There's always more horticulture to learn about. Herbaceous plants have non-woody stems. Perennials come back each year.


Daylilies are low maintenance flowers that come in a large variety of colors. They can be seen in colors like orange, pink, purple, red, yellow, and white (Almanac).

Daylilies are hearty plants that are drought resistant and virtually disease and pest free. These plants thrive in full sun, but can also grow in partial shade.


Hostas are a large family of plants, many of which have flowers blooming. These plants come in many colors and shapes, and work well in all types of locations (Enchanted Gardens)

Common flower colors include white, lavender, and purple. These plants work well in full to partial shade, which are great for landscaping underneath trees.


Peonies are another beautiful flower that blooms in late spring and early summer. These flowers actually have six types: anemone, Japanese, bomb, single, semi-double, and double.

They come in lots of colors such as white, blush, pink, and red. Peonies thrive best in full sun (Almanac).

Shasta Daisies

Shasta Daisies are a simple accent perfect for landscaping. With white petals and yellow disk florets, they are quite the pretty flower.

These flowers are slightly aggressive growers, but keeping them confined to flower beds will help prevent overgrowth. They thrive best in full sun (Almanac).


The Adam’s Needle, also known as the Yucca, is a very tall flower, growing up to eight feet tall. It has sword-like leaves and bell-shaped white flowers.

Yuccas are closely related to cacti and

succulents. As such, they grow best in

full sun (The Spruce).
