New Perennial movement neither new nor likely to fade

If you keep up with landscaping trends, you may be wondering if the New Perennial movement is over or just getting warmed up.

It is worth noting that the cornerstone of the New Perennial movement isn’t all that new. In fact, in the early 1900s, more than one gardener was combining hearty perennials with grasses to achieve the effect the movement is known for today.

While the most recent incarnation of the trend has been around for at least a decade, it isn’t likely to fade any time soon. Some gardeners and landscapers predict that now that the New Perennial movement is known outside professional circles, it will somehow be cheapened, leading to its demise.

Now that the New Perennial movement has caught on with mainstream gardeners, it is likely to spawn some shoddy imitations. While that is true, it is just as likely that many new to the method will add fresh interpretations, keeping it viable for many years to come.
