Top Perennial floweing plants in India

We all love plants and gardening is fun. It's relaxing, calming and makes it for a great hobby.

But gardening requires patience and an adequate amount of time. People sometimes may give up on plants as no progress is visible, thi specially happens with flowering plants. This especially happens with the beginners, they do not have enough patience to wait for the flowering season.This leads to too much effort or ignorance in plant maintenance, and eventually the plant may not survive for another flowering season.


What if we say you can keep the desire of plantation alive by bringing home some perennial plants?

Perennial: lasting or existing for a long or apparently infinite time; enduring or continually recurring.

Let’s have a look at some of the hardy perennial plants.


The vine species grow anywhere from 1 to 12 m (3 to 40 ft.) tall, scrambling over other plants with their spiky thorns.

The actual flower of the plant is small and generally white, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts with the bright colours associated with the plant, including pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, white, or yellow. Bougainvillea glabra is sometimes referred to as “paper flower” because the bracts are thin and papery.
