Perennial Catalogs

A hot bowl of chili is a great way to warm the body after spending time outdoors on a cold, winter day. A sure way to warm the spirits of gardeners on these gray, wintery days is to leaf through a stack of newly arrived garden catalogs. Wind chills, weather advisories, and aching backs are quickly forgotten (as least for a few minutes) as gardeners glance through the brightly colored catalogs and make plans for next spring and summer.

Perennials have become increasingly popular in the last 15 to 20 years. Gardeners can purchase perennials at local garden centers and mail-order nurseries. For your convenience, the mailing addresses and web sites of several mail-order companies that specialize in perennials is provided.
