Garden plants are certainly the most popular type of plant for home gardens and there are literally hundreds of varieties available. This makes it easy for a gardener to select the exact type of plant that they need for their personal garden. For example, some varieties of plant will do well in the sun while others might thrive in a shaded environment.
Perennials are a type of plant that grows and blooms during the springtime and summer, but dies each winter and fall. However, the plant returns to life from their roots in the following spring.

Due to the many varieties, perennials can live a short life of only a few years or may live for an extended life time.
Ferns are vascular plants with stems and leaves, but they do not have seeds or flowers. Most ferns are purchased from garden centers for use as ornamental plants as they really do not have any type of economical value. Another type of plants are wetland plants, which naturally grow in a wetland environment and are commonly referred to as hydrophytes or hydrophytic vegetation.

The live stakes can be placed through various structures such as openings in rock areas, etc.
