Lupin is a classic cottage-garden flower with a variety of colours to suit any space. Its large, daisy-like flowers are often scented and attract plenty of pollinators. It grows well in sun or shade and will regrow from pieces of its root when it dies. However, it’s important to choose a good soil, as slugs love the young foliage of this plant.
For the perennial border, you can plant a clump of this shrub. It’s a great way to add color to your yard and will bloom for weeks at a time. You can even use the flowers from your clumps of holly to make fresh flower arrangements. Regardless of its location, these plants are both low-maintenance and can tolerate drought and heat well. This means they’re easy to care for in your garden, but they’ll definitely provide you with beauty and long-lasting blooms.
You can also plant a Helleborus, otherwise known as the Lenten Rose. This plant is known for its early blooming and cup-shaped flowers. Its flowers are available in a variety of colors, including white, burgundy, and raspberry pink. The foliage is bushy, with thick, evergreen leaves. In addition to their lovely colors, Helleborus is also resistant to pests and drought.
Torenia is another excellent choice for annual garden flowers. This plant has white and yellow flowers and grows well in partial shade. Its tall, mounding habit means it’s a great choice for edging beds or containers. If you’d prefer a colorful garden, Torenia Clown Mix is a beautiful variety. The colorful petals of Torenia are a great combination and the plant will bloom throughout the year.
For the best fragrance, try night-blooming flowers. These plants are incredibly fragrant and can be planted on walkways and in the yard. The scent will fill the air as you walk by at night. It will also provide your garden with a mystical touch. So many options are available and you’re sure to find something that suits your needs. And if you don’t have a green thumb, try kalanchoes. They are beautiful, succulent plants that are perfect for both indoor and outdoor settings.
Sunflowers are easy to grow and have showy flowers. They typically grow to around 10 feet and produce plate-sized blooms. Their seeds are edible and can be roasted for a delicious snack.
