Perennials for Zones 4 & 5

Perennials differ from shrubs in that they will die down to the ground, sleep all Winter and surface again in the Spring. Shrubs are woody, will lose their leaves and just sit there all Winter long until they come alive again in Spring. It took me a long time to figure out something seemingly simple.

So here are my favourite Perennials:
