What Perennials Can Give Another Flush Of Flowers Amongst Redwood Trees

Question From: Kneeland, California, United States
Q: I live in Northern California zone 8/9 redwood forest. what perenials besides penstimen/ salvia can you rejuvenate for another flush of flowers. I was hoping you could with alestromeria

A: Alstroemeria is a very long bloomer, as is agastache, veronica, nepeta and a raft of others too numerous to mention. Just be sure to cut the stems back to node or a new bud. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
