Title: Herbaceous Ornamentals: A Guide to Common Annuals, Perennials, Biennials, and Bulbs
Create a garden or landscape by understanding plant classifications: herbaceous plants: soft-stemmed plants which may be classified as annuals, perennials, or biennials; or woody plants: perennials, largely trees, and shrubs, and maybe deciduous or evergreen and retain their stems, which resume growth with the start of each season.

Annual Plant Sale
The Perennial Plant Society has an annual plant sale in Nashville TN, probably one of the largest in Tennessee. Due to the COVID pandemic we had to switch to a virtual plant sale in 2020 and 2021.
The Annual Plant Sale for 2021 has SOLD OUT. For 2022, we are hopeful that we will be able to have an in person plant sale
Look for announcements about the 2022 Plant Sale on our website early March 2022.
As always, we will have hundreds of great, locally grown plants for sun and shade for you to choose from. And once again, your purchases will support horticultural education and scholarship in Tennessee.
