Long-blooming Plants - Six Weeks Or Longer

Many perennials have flower interest for months ar a time, and the following species catch the eye for many weeks. They don't throw only an occasional flower; rather, they just keep on partying. Removing spent flowers results in more persistent flowers with almost all species. Plants in the Northeast and Northewest tend to persist longer than those where high temperatures consistently occur.
