Many gardeners live in drought-prone areas where it is necessary to conserve water, which means a lot needs to go into the “planning and organizing” phase of gardening, even before the gloves come on. Other gardeners, in places like the Northeast, may not need to conserve water, but choose to plant drought resistant varieties to help save on their water bill or give themselves less work in the garden. Whatever your reason may be to go drought tolerant, we have several hardy, easy-to-grow perennial varieties that are perfect for almost any garden.

Each year, the National Garden Bureau chooses a perennial to feature as their "Perennial of the Year." They recently announced that 2014 is the "Year of the Echinacea." We are thrilled because Echinacea is one of our favorite perennials and we carry over 20 varieties as seeds and plants.
This year it was so difficult to choose our photo contest winners, we decided to go with five! Read our blog to view the stunning photos that won our contest this season.
