Heritage Perennials Heritage Perennials® are grown in distinctive blue pots by Valleybrook Gardens, a family-owned nursery farm. We are one of North America’s largest wholesale producers of herbaceous perennials. We grow millions of plants each season at our two facilities: Abbotsford, British Columbia (near Vancouver) and Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario (near Niagara Falls).

    And because this is our section of perennial sun-lovers, these problem-solving plants will grow more and more impressive every subsequent year. Just be sure to check how much sun your garden gets--part to full sun plants require around hours of sun per average day, and full sun perennials thrive in 8 or more hours of sunlight.   The best plants for rock gardens tend to be on the small side, often alpine in origin and drought-tolerant. They all need good drainage – especially if you live somewhere that gets a good amount of rainfall each year. Think tiny when it comes to your rock garden plants.

    Perennials come back every year, so you can plant them once and enjoy them for years to come. Some perennial flowers bloom for months. Other perennials attract pollinators, bees and butterflies. Others, like hosta and ornamental grasses, are grown for their foliage. When choosing perennials for your garden, ask yourself what you want them to do. It allows the gardener to grow things that wouldn't normally grow in their soil or climate. For example, if your native soil is clay, you can grow perennials that prefer lighter soil in containers and then place the container in your garden. Similarly, if your soil is alkaline, you can grow acid-loving perennials .
