Permaculture is for everyone. Permaculture is for everyone.

Perennials are a large component of Permaculture. When you’re planning your garden, this list of perennials should help you to see whether that plant you’re contemplating will stay around more than a year or two.

Perennials give a consistent look to your garden and are commonly used as a starting point when planning front yard edible landscapes. Plant your perennials first, then add in edible annuals to add lushness while your perennial plants are becoming established.
