Already once every three or four years, even notorious lazy people will share thickened landings.
Moreover, picking up varieties, it is possible to achieve bulbous flowering from early spring to late autumn. For example, crocuses are divided into early spring-flowering, spring flowering and autumn flowering.
The first group includes imperial crocuses (striped, purple-white), narrow-leaved (with bronze and golden petals) and golden-colored (thick yellow and purple with white).
The second group consists of large-flowered hybrids with blue, yellow, purple flowers (Little Dorrit, Pikvik).

All bulbous like sunny places with well-drained soil. Only proleski withstand partial shade and moderately moist soil.
Many lilies also do not require endless digging and planting. To divide them once every 4-5 years is easy.
With perennials too much trouble is not expected. To feed after winter, before flowering and after flowering, to divide the rhizomes once every few years, even lazy.
Feel free to plant lilies of the valley, peonies, a dicenter, irises, phloxes, astilbe, rudbeckia (including the Golden Ball), delphinium and Jerusalem artichoke in your area. You can sow annuals: kosmeyu, calendula, nasturtium, cornflowers, etc. To avoid unnecessary digging and loosening, use mulch in a flower garden. Yes, and water is better not every day, little by little, but even once in two weeks, but thoroughly. When creating a flower bed of continuous flowering do not forget to place the highest flowers in the background: Beds of continuous flowering in schemes

Perennial asters are quite unpretentious, they reproduce in the simplest way - by dividing the bush, with their light-loving ability they grow well in the penumbra, they are extremely cold-resistant. How to plant asters for seedlings can be found in this article.
The vegetation period of these plants is long. The stem of flowers is hollow, grassy, branching. Inflorescences are incredibly diverse in color, size and shape.
Single-row, spherical, anemone-shaped, collar, peony, ornamental and other varieties of annual and perennial gergins are spectacular in both single and intermittent group plantings.
Perennial Chrysanthemum Varieties
A huge number of beautiful varieties of chrysanthemums that exist today, the result of centuries of work of genuine connoisseurs and admirers of these amazing flowers.

Perennial phloxes belong to the family of Sinyukhovs. They are decorative in arrays, rabatkah. Single phlox plantings look favorably against the background of a well-groomed lawn.
Autumn late varieties bloom Phlox paniculata. This species has a huge number of hybrids, which explains the variety of color of its flowers.

The plant is undemanding to the conditions of light, grows well in wet soils. By winter, hydrangea is better to cover.
Proper care is essential for healthy growth.
Above, some aspects of caring for specific perennials were mentioned. In general, the care of perennial plants is reduced to timely produced loosening, feeding, watering, weeding.
When selecting perennials for flower design, one should take into account their appearance, the principles of compatibility with each other, the timing and duration of flowering, as well as the demands of plants for natural factors, such as illuminated terrain and soil acidity.
Open, well-lit places are recommended for planting crocuses, heliopsis, gailardia, planting of asters (which are fairly well tolerated by penumbra), dahlia, chrysanthemums, rudbyky, coroopsis. At the same time, dahlias, chrysanthemums, crocuses require protection from the wind. Hydrangea and goldenrod are undemanding to light.
Soil selection is important for normal plant development.
Loamy nutrient soils are good for dahlias, hydrangeas, asters. On sandy and dry soils, gailardia, crocuses, stonecrops, and stokesia grow well. Moderate watering and ensuring drainage (removal of excess moisture) are necessary for good growth and flowering of chrysanthemums, asters, stonecrop, orebeckia.
Almost all perennials are responsive to fertilizers. The first fertilizing with organic fertilizers should be done in the spring, after the snow melted. Mineral fertilizers are made from the moment of flowering.
In addition, dahlias, for example, require compliance with crop rotation: the area freed from flowers should be given a "rest", then after 3 - 5 years to make planting again. Before the onset of winter, be sure to prune perennial flowers for the winter, except for those planted in the soil this fall.
With the right choice of the type of soil for planting, diversion of necessary and sufficient living space, good care, perennials will delight in lush flowering for more than one year.

Stems are simple or branched. Inflorescence is a simple basket. The flowers are bright yellow (there are red) with glossy petals, single (up to 8 outer tepals).
Winter-hardy plant, grows well in open, lighted places (slight shading is allowed). The preferred soil is light, moist, with organic matter and lime. Adonis does not like transplants (if necessary, transplant with a lump of earth).
In the culture most often adonis perennials:
- adonis fluffy (A. Villosa) - blooms in May, has pubescent stems, reaches a height of 30 cm,

Although hyacinths in the open ground are practically not prone to pests and diseases, care should be constant (loosen the soil 2-3 times, 3 times before blooming, during budding and upon completion of flowering - to fertilize periodically watered). Simple hyacinths vary in color and are divided into 6 groups:
- whites ("Argentina", "Carnegie", "Linossaens", etc.),
