Perry's Perennial Pages

earth imageLinks-- Specific Perennial Information

The following sites provide information on specific perennials. Only firms and sites fairly easily accessible, with seemingly accurate information at time of checking, and some identification, are listed. This list is reviewed and updated periodically, but is by no means inclusive, is constantly changing, and is not meant to discriminate against those sites not mentioned nor endorse those mentioned.

More links and resources, especially for the larger genera, can be found under the Specific Plants Sources of Other Perennial Web Sites-- both the societies and garden gates.   Please also see listings for Perennial Sources, Local Perennial Sources, or Wholesale Perennial Sources-- many catalogs and nurseries having extensive plant details. State University Extension clickable map for all states, some with publications on specific plants for specific areas.
