Heirloom Perennial Plants
What is an heirloom plant? Any fruit, flower, or vegetable variety that was established before World War II and is open-pollinated. Additionally, it is the old cultivar of a plant used for food that is grown by farmers and gardeners, particularly in isolated or ethnic minority communities of the Western world.
These perennials are known to be tried and true, and will bring a sense of history to your garden.
