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.

Engelman Ivy is one of the most beautiful of the fall coloured vines. It turns a rich burgundy in autumn, sometime with copper or bronze highlights. It will quickly (and we mean quickly) cover up an eyesore for you. Don't be afraid to use this beauty along a wooden fence or to stabilize the ground along a slope.

Unlike Stachys byzantina (Lamb's Ear), this species forms large, rounded clumps of green, long and narrow, textured leaves. It is lovely even when it's not in bloom. From early thru midsummer, sturdy spikes of lavender-rose flowers shoot up through the foliage, putting on quite a display.
This selection has a compact habit which makes it perfect for edging, containers, or other small spaces. The foliage spread the first year is quite impressive for a dwarf plant. Dark violet-purple flowers are produced nearly all summer long, particularly if plants are deadheaded.
This beautiful shade perennial will make you dance with its impressive spring flowers and unique foliage. Starting in mid-spring shortly after Hellebores are finished booming, dainty light periwinkle blue flowers cover a low, mounded habit. After the flowers fade, you can enjoy its dark green leaves that are lightly sprinkled with silver.
‘Dark Towers’ has much darker foliage that emerges wine purple and keeps its color much better through the summer heat. It grows a bit taller than ‘Husker Red’ and produces masses of pink, rather than white, flowers in early to midsummer depending on the zone.
Prized for its durability in the hot, humid summers of the south and its cold tolerance in the north, 'Becky' has proven to be a sturdy, hardy cultivar. Copious amounts of very large, 3in single, white blooms are produced atop strong stems which are ideal for cutting. Despite its height, this variety does not usually require staking.
Heuchera 'Obsidian' exhibits this same glassy sheen and is closer to black than any other heuchera. The surface and edges of the rounded leaves are so smooth they look like they have been polished. Their undersides are deep purple and exhibit the same glassy finish.
