In the simplest terms, a perennial is a plant that lives for at least 3 or more years. We usually use this term to describe herbaceous perennials when talking about gardens. Trees and shrubs last for many years too of course, but these are woody plants. The life span of a perennial varies quite a bit, depending on climate, soil conditions, insects or diseases and the particular plant in question. We know the Winnipeg Manitoba market well and provide the plants that work best in our climate.

This selection is rapidly becoming one of the most popular garden ferns. Its common name 'Brilliance Autumn Fern' refers to the lustrous orange colour of the newly emerging fronds which seem to glow against the backdrop of the shiny, dark green, mature fronds.
This fern's vibrant burgundy stems coupled with its dark green fronds will compliment everything else in your shade garden. When planted amidst the dark purple leaves of coral bells, its burgundy stems really stand out. Note: The burgundy color in the stems develops after the second dormancy.
