Our Staff Picks for Perennials Right Now!

Updated: Aug 12, 2021

North Florida primarily resides in Growing zone 9. Growing perennial plants is truly a piece of cake, and the most difficult part is deciding which perennials you like best. In fact, many plants grown as annuals in cooler climates grow happily year round in zone 9 where temperatures rarely, if ever, dip below the freezing point. The list of perennial plants in zone 9 is nearly endless, but here is a brief rundown on a few of our staff picks:


This beauty is also known as butterfly bush for very good reason, is a sun-loving, flowering shrub that reaches heights of 3 to 5 feet (1 to 1.5 m.). Buddleia is available in a huge variety of colors, including white, pink, purple, yellow, red, lavender, and blue.

Russian Sage

This plant is a tough but beautiful plant that thrives in hot, dry conditions. This tall perennial is valued not only for its gorgeous, bluish-purple blooms, but also the aromatic, silvery-green foliage.

Black-Eyed Susan

This plant produces waves of daisy-like blooms in sunny shades of red, rust, yellow, and bronze, each with dark eye in the center.

Asiatic Lily

A North Florida popular plant is a nearly foolproof perennial available in several stunning solid colors and bi-colors. A fast multiplier that grows from bulbs planted in fall or early spring, Asiatic lily is easy to divide for planting elsewhere in your garden, or for sharing with gardening friends. Although not true lilies, daylily varieties (Hemerocallis spp.) are popular too and available in many colors as well.

Trumpet Vine

Hummingbirds are unable to resist trumpet vine (Campsis Radicans), which produces masses of yellow, red, or salmon, trumpet-shaped blooms. Allow plenty of space for this rambunctious vine.
