This weekend, Homestead Gardens is hosting its Perennial Pandemonium – a weekend full of seminars, talks, workshops, food, fun and yes tons of perennials.
Perennials shrubs, plants and flowers pop up every spring and summer and die off in the fall. They re-appear each year producing bright, colorful flowers that last for weeks or months at a time.

Cohen is the author of numerous books including The Perennial Gardener’s Design Primer and the NonStop Garden. Cohen is also a contributing editor for Fine Gardening , the newsletter for HGTV.
