Blue Lobelia--Lobelia siphilitica. 

Blue lobelia, also called the blue cardinal flower, is a stunning perennial that requires medium to wet soil. It features showy, bright blue tubular flowers on leafy, light green stalks and typically grows to a height of two to three feet. Perfect for wet, clay soil, blue lobelia provides brilliant color in borders, along streams, around ponds, or in wet meadows. It blooms in late summer and can be grown in partial to full shade. It attracts hummingbirds and is a favorite of butterflies and other pollinators. Easy to grow from seed, this herbaceous plant may self-sow.

Red Cardinal Plant--Lobelia cardinalis.

Red cardinal plant, also known as cardinal flower, is a showy, aromatic perennial that features vivid red flowers on upright leafy stems that can reach up to six feet in height. Its long tubular scarlet flowers depend on hummingbirds for pollination, making them a great addition to hummingbird gardens. Requiring medium to wet soil, this herbaceous plant grows in the shade to partial shade, or in full sun in colder areas. An attractive choice for borders or wildflower meadows, this hardy perennial grows in Zones 1-10, and blooms in mid to late summer. Seeds are easy to collect and grow, or it may be propagated through dividing or stem cuttings.

Dutchman's Breeches--Dicentra cuccullaria.

Dutchman's breeches is an herbaceous perennial that blooms in spring and grows from six inches to a foot in height. It prefers moist soils in partial shade and does not tolerate wet soils in winter. 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. The flowers grow in rows on leafless stems above the grayish-green foliage. They may be propagated by dividing the crowns and tubers or by seed.

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.
