Cynthia Beacom, Hunt County Master Gardener, says perennials are economical and relatively easy to manage in the garden.  She says one of her favorites is the purple coneflower.  She says other colors of the plant don't work as well for her.  She also recommends Jacob Cline bee balm (which attracts bees) and John Fanick phlox (which attracts butterflies).
