Easy Perennial Garden Flowers
For Coastal Gardens

Some Perennial Garden Flowers are very easy to grow and thrive well in seaside conditions.

These easy to grow flowers need little maintenance, add great color to your garden and of course grow year after year. This selection of plants is wind and salt tolerant. Just give them a sunny spot with reasonable good soil and drainage. These easy perennials will provide color throughout the gardening season.

Daylilies are one of the easiest flowering plants to grow. They come in many flower colors and sizes. Hemerocallis are available in red, orange, pink, purple, white or yellow.

This low maintenance flower grows up to 50-90 cm high depending on variety. The foliage is deciduous.


Kniphofias - Red Hot Pokers

Kniphofias are clump-forming, evergreen perennial garden flowers with a striking appearance. The tall flower spikes can have various colors from orange-red to yellow. There are also red or yellow varieties available. The yellow ones are my personal favorite!

The size of Kniphofias can vary dramatically depending on the variety. Some are compact and others grow into huge plants so do your homework when choosing a Red Hot Poker for your flower beds! The large varieties are great for banks, slopes or as a dramatic focal point though.
Kniphofias are excellent plants for windy gardens.
