Perennial Flowers

Faddegon's is known throughout the capital region for our huge selection of perennial flowers. As the spring season nears, bulbs for summer bloom arrive. This is the signal we love. It means we won't have to wait too much longer for outdoor plants to trickle in. In the world of perennials, we're looking to welcome hellebores, moss phlox and columbine to name just a few. The trickle turns to a constant flow of flowering plants, filling tables, benches and walkways!
