1. Eco-Boosting: Perennials
Popularity increasing from the past decade
Favored more now with annuals, as container plants, for low maintenance, or for specific uses.
Trend reflects the desire to balance technology with nature, to seek calm, to find sustainability
“New Wave Perennial Gardening” Emphasizing tough, sturdy perennials planted in masses and chosen for hardiness and structure for that climate. Oudolf estimates he spends 1/3 less time tending these plants. Plants are self seeding and have a high survival rate.
