Power Perennials: Plants that Thrive No Matter What
I keep seeing the most amazing photos of this type of hedge and I finally learned the name. Miscanthus produces showy copper colored flower plumes in September and brilliant fall gold foliage. This perennial is zone 5 hardy and is both deer resistant and drought proof once established. Make sure to shear back this hedge plant in the spring to about 12” from the ground. This helps to re-energize the plant for the coming season.
Astilbe: a shade-loving plant. Perfect for Zone 5 planting. – Would be great in the shadier areas of the back yard
