10 of the Best New Perennials For 2020

Article by Wanda Simone

For gardeners this is one of the most exciting times of the year.

This is when plant growers start announcing their new plants that are coming out next spring.

And when I start figuring out where I can squeeze in just one more shrub and a couple of perennials. Pretty soon I’m going to need a bigger yard 🙂

But I can’t help it. When I read about Hibiscus with fuchsia flowers and black leaves (how stunning is that?), or re-blooming perennial Salvia (finally!), or Achillea that doesn’t spread, or mini Alliums that do…I just have to get them!

So without further ado…here are my 10 favorite new perennials for 2020 (in no particular order)
