Perennial Plants

Visit our Sterling Heights greenhouse for the best selection of perennial flowers and plants around.

We specialize in perennials, from the preferred and popular to the rare and unusual. At Eckert's we have the best perennial selection in the Sterling Heights area. Perennials are the backbone of many gardens as they only need to be planted once.

What is a Perennial?

Perennials are plants that live more than a year as mother nature allows. Examples are daylilies, peony, & iris. Trees and shrubs are considered woody perennials. Herbaceous perennials are plants that die back down to their roots during the winter. These plants generally live more than 2 years and can live indefinitely. Many gardeners add new perennial plants to their garden each year and fill in the space with annuals. Perennials are truly an investment in your garden and your curb appeal.

Planting Instructions:

  1. Dig a hole that is at least 1 1/2" bigger than the potted plant.
  2. Place in the bottom of the hole up to an inch of compost like Purple Cow or manure like Miracle Grow Manure.
  3. Slowly take the plant out of the pot by squeezing the sides to loosen plant and if able push plant from bottom out.
  4. The top of the soil level of the plant should be planted the same level of soil in flower bed.
  5. Water thoroughly and fertilize every 2-3 weeks.
