Perry's Perennial Pages

Perennial Leaflets-- by State

Dr. Leonard P. Perry, Extension Professor, University of Vermont

The following leaflets are those from various universities and botanic gardens which relate specifically to perennials. They are listed by state, and grouped by US or Canada. Those marked with (pdf) require Adobe Acrobat Reader to view.  Other leaflets may be found under Other Perennial Web Sites.  Many leaflets may be applicable to your state, even though not originating there. Publications and sites have all been checked by a real person (Dr. Leonard Perry, Univ. VT), and chosen for ones most relevant to "perennial gardening". This list is by no means complete, so click on each bold state name for its Extension publications, OR if the links to publications in that state have changed.
