Perennials by Genus

Perennials by Genus

At White Flower Farm, we have long made it our business to offer the broadest possible range of perennials—from classics and new discoveries to unusual and hard-to-find specimens. Our Perennials by Genus collection includes flowering species, foliage plants, perennials that grow well in shade, and sun-loving varieties. While the breadth of our offering may prove intimidating to new gardeners, we also make it our business to offer plenty of assistance in making selections. Novice and experienced gardeners may contact us via email or phone, and also find helpful information in our online videos and growing guides. Whatever your level of experience, we're certain you'll find a perennial (or five or ten) to suit your needs.

To shop our perennials, you can view and filter our complete list, or explore the individual genera shown below. When in doubt, try the search box at the top of the page. Please note that our list of varieties changes each season, and that some popular genera (most notably Poppies) are shipped only in the fall.
