This graceful wildflower may often be found on forest floors and along streams. Its white and yellow flowers are often tinged with pink, and their shape is reminiscent of a pair of pants hanging upside down from which it derived the name Dutchman's breeches.

You’ll likely want a mix of both to add various forms and colors throughout the landscape. Get perennial plants that are compatible with your gardening Hardiness Zone if you want them to return. Perennial plants can grow as annual plants (those that do not come back) if planted in an incompatible Zone. This planting is a way to add perennial color and texture for a season.
Perennial plants are the backbone of the landscape in many plantings. Add annual flowers in the bed with them to complete the display. For instance, grow the indestructible daylily and add petunias to creep below. Match colors, or add contrasting colors for impact. The perennial daylily multiplies each year so that you can expect more flowers as the year's pass.
The beautiful flower of this favorite plant only lasts for a day, but many more wait to replace it, resulting in a long-lasting display. Surround it with your favorite annuals or grow other perennial plants, such as shorter Oriental and Asiatic lilies. Pack the bed with blooms to have new color bursting from late winter through autumn.
