Here's the best of the best for us this year, thanks to a University of Minnesota researcher.

MORRIS, Minn. — We love perennials because they come back each year, but only annuals can give us color and blooms all season long.

Thanks to Steve Poppe at the West Central Research and Outreach Center in Morris, MN, we have a list to choose from that won't let us down.

Here they are!
