Perennials (Zone 6b)

Perennials, it makes sense; buy something once and have it come back year after year. Circa 2015 I became a new home owner and inadvertently stumbled across two plants; globe thistle and dead nettle. These plants kicked off a love affair as I attempted to make the area around my house as beautiful as possible. Here are the plants I have worked with to varying degrees of success in Zone 6b.
