6 Spring Perennials to Plant in 2021!
There are plenty of signs of spring to watch for. The days get a little longer, and a bit warmer. You might spot a robin taking a perch on a nearby tree branch. But one of the most exciting signs of spring are the first spring perennials that make their appearance.
When you plant spring perennials, you’re giving a gift to your future self. The beauty of these (mostly) bulb-y babies is that they are basically one and done; you only have to plant them once, and then you get to enjoy them for years to come.
