Our perennials are entering dormancy for the winter season. Some of the hardier plants still look great, some plants may look like they’re in trouble, and some have gone completely dormant already with no foliage showing. But don’t worry! This is a natural process, and if you plant these now you will have a beautiful garden in the spring.
You may notice the following:
- Brown or fall leaf coloration
- Leaf spotting or dead leaves
- Stems that are brown and brittle
- Stems or leaves that have been cut back
- Some plants may have no foliage above ground
It is the nature of perennials to go dormant every winter, but they still have strong root systems that will help them survive the colder season.
