Choosing Flowers for Your Garden

March 2, 2012

      You walk into your local plant nursery and you see all of these beautiful, great smelling flowers but there are just too many to choose from. You may prefer flowers that are easy to grow, great smelling flowers, or the most vibrant color flowers. Below is a list of many different flowers and what they have to offer:

  1. Easy to grow flowers- blue flax, marigold, morning glory, daisies, poppies, and zinnias.
  2. Most fragrant flowers- Bergamot, chamomile, lavender, lilacs, roses, and sweet pea.
  3. Drought resistant flowers- baby breath, chamomile, cosmos, lavender, Mexican sunflower, perennial sweat pea, strawflowers, and zinnias.
  4. Edible flowers- chamomile, hollyhocks, lavender, nasturtiums, pansies, and violas.
  5. Flowers for cutting- baby’s breath, butterfly flowers, Canterbury bells, daisies, irises, roses, snapdragons, and tulips.

There is a flower for every type of person out there. Ones for if you don’t have much time to spend on them, ones that smell great, ones for hot dry areas, ones for eating and making meals pop, and ones for cutting for a bouquet or centerpiece. The choice is yours!
