The Perennials of Master Gardeners
By Audrey Giles
The Garden of Master Gardeners has many perennials. Those are our members that keep coming back, year after year. We also have many octogenarians and nonagenarians in our Garden of Members. A few plants that come to mind that can live to be 100 are the Jade plant and Christmas cacti. Peonies are another plant that can live on and on for years, as can the orchid. Ferns can also live to be 100 or more. So like the plants that live on and on, we at Chilton County Master Gardeners Association celebrate our octogenarians and nonagenarians and recognize them each year to let them know how much they are appreciated.
