I’m interested in perennial gardening and want to know what plants are best for novice gardeners.

Here is a partial listing of some of the easier to grow perennial plants for sunny areas: Daylilies (Hemerocallis species), Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberose), Cannas (Canna generalis), Blanket Flower (Gaillardia x grandiflora), German or Bearded Iris (Iris hybrids), Evening Primrose (Oenothera speciosa), Creeping Phlox or Thrift (Phlox subulata), and Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia fulgida). As your confidence grows, consider adding more challenging varieties.
