Perenial Flowers

Linda Rankin - TexasJuly 4, 2000

My husband has built a flower box about 15 feet long and 18 inches wide. I want perenial plants, so I won't have to replant every year. We live in central Texas, about 120 miles from Lubbock, Amarillo, Abilene and Wichita Falls.

It's usually hot, dry and windy. Also, is there a perenial flower that attracks hummingbirds?

How deep is the flower box?? This is IMHO more important than the other dimensions.

WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF PERENIAL FLOWERS? WE LIVE IN MICHIGAN--I HATE TO ACT IGNORANT BUT IT'S CONFUSING FOR US NON-GREEN THUMBS--ALSO WHICH FLOWERS ARE CONSIDERED ANNUALS? I KNOW ANNUAL IS YEARLY--BUT DOES THAT MEAN THEY COME UP YEARLY OR I HAVE TO PLANT THEM YEARLY. THANKS FOR HELPING US SORT THIS OUT.

What causes Gladoluses to be all rusty? I have a friend that lives in the Adriondacks. He ended up throwing away all his bulbs because they had rusty leaves and blossoms when they bloom. Thanks

Perennials come up every year, annuals don't.

good sites about gardening/plants in Texas:

lots of things do well here...I'd post my question on the Texas Gardening forum if I were you.
