Perennials find favor not only with gardeners but also with slugs.
Ornamental perennials prettify gardens and lawns with their predictable flowering.
Unfortunately, ornamentals may attract unwelcome visitors such as slugs.
Awareness of a plant's specific pest threats is key to strategizing for healthy ornamentals whose beauty remains unmarred by slug onslaughts.
Popular perennials which are sensitive to slug feeding frenzies include:
•Atkinsii snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis 'Atkinsii),
•black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta),
•blue cowslip or blue lungwort (Pulmonaria angustifolia),
•Brilliant showy stonecrop or showy stonecrop or ice plant (Sedum spectabile 'Brilliant' or Hylotelephium spectabile 'Brilliant'),
•heath aster (Aster ericoides),
•lamb's ears or woolly betony (Stachys byzantina),
•peach-leafed bellflower or willow bellflower (Campanula persicifolia), and
•Silver Light bergenia or elephant ears (Bergenia 'Silberlicht).
