From spring to fall, these are your staples– just fill in along the way with a few annuals, tropicals, and short bloomers.

That being said, full sun perennials will also require the bulk of your attention. Full sun perennials will respond positively to regular maintenance.

Caring for full sun perennials may be taxing, but you will appreciate your garden when the work is done. Check out all the sun perennials from Wayside!
