A couple years ago, we built dug a hole and installed an ornamental pond by our front patio. Since then, we’ve added gardens around it, starting with shrubs and some annuals I split from previous gardens. I was so excited to add vibrant new perennials from Darwin Perennials to my newest garden! They certainly are stealing the show as you’ll see below.

My Darwin Perennials annuals arrived at my doorstep but you can find them through various suppliers and retailers, just check the label.
My daughter and I enjoyed unpacking every preciously wrapped annual!
They sent me a variety of their new perennial varieties, although not all of them because there are 66 new ones with over 600 total to choose from!!
Next, I placed the annuals throughout my new garden, ensuring there was enough space between them and grouping them in 3’s or odd number arrangements.
This is what my garden looks like now! Obviously, many are still not in full bloom but isn’t it a lovely perennial garden?! What I LOVE about perennials is that they come back bigger and better every year. This garden will be packed with a variety of perennials and colors! I also like that they bloom at different times so that my garden will always have color throughout summer and fall.
The Echinacea Sombrero Sangrita and Granada Gold are by far my favorites!!!
The Sangrita blooms are vibrant with scarlet-red petals that can’t be missed. They are show stoppers for sure!!
All three are blooming gorgeously.
The Granada Gold are just starting here.
And look at the beautiful results – soft, rich, golden yellow that is so cheery and welcoming. The color doesn’t fade either, keeping its color to delight for a long time. Once the blooms are spent, cut them back but keep them for the birds to enjoy!
Another delightful flower that I’ve been really enjoying is the Armeria Dreameria Sweet Dreams. Look at those delicate blooms! It attracts butterflies and hummingbirds – I’ve already seen both even with just these two first blooms!
I am also a big fan of ornamental grasses. I placed the Miscanthus Bandwidth around the edge of pond’s hill that houses the waterfall. It looks stunning there. This eye-catching beauty won’t get too tall, so it is great to use with borders. Don’t worry, it isn’t invasive like other grasses so it won’t devour your gardens.
I can’t wait to see how my garden continues to bloom and grow this summer and for years to come. If you are starting a new flower bed this summer or want to add pops of color to your established beds, add a few of these or other attention-getting perennials from Darwin Perennials. It is an investment that will last and last for years to come.
