Ultimate List of the Most Popular Flowers for your Flower Garden
Vinca is one of the hardiest flowers around. This colorful annual grows just like Impatiens BUT can tolerate the hot sun and drier soil. In other words, they like it hot and don’t need a lot of water! Another benefit? – they are deer resistant. So, if you live in an area where the deer like to peek in your windows, and destroy your landscape, try these beauties. Vinca colors include white, pinks and purples.
This is a no-kill flower that you can plant in your flower garden. Sunflowers are pretty easy to plant, grow and maintain. They also seem to make everyone smile, as they are simply gorgeous. Sunflowers grow best in sunny locations.
This flower comes in just about any color possible, except blue. I love that zinnias can take the form to look so different. Some may look like pom poms, daisies or even dahlias. Follow the instructions on the seed packet to plant zinnias and be sure to space them as directed on the package.
This beautiful flower will bring bright shades of yellow, red and gold to your flower garden. While you can find short versions of marigolds, their African or American versions can grow three to five feet in height.
Impatiens are bright and cheery annuals that grow well in a shady area. You should plant impatiens in the warmer weather, when frost season is over, and be sure to keep them watered. They are easy to care for and enjoy a well-drained soil.
One of the easiest flowers for your flower garden is begonias and perhaps that’s why they’re included in my most popular flowers for your flower garden list. Begonias are happy with sun or shade and do well in a flower bed or even hanging basket to add color to your flower garden.
These beautiful flowers do well in the spring and fall season. I personally love that snapdragons attract butterflies to your flower garden. These flowers do well through harsh weather and bloom heavily in the spring as well as fall season with pink and cream colors.
Coleus are another shade to part-sun loving plant. Vibrant burgundy, red and greens take center stage for this plant. Coleus don’t have an actual flower but they do get pretty white shoots once they mature. They are perfect for borders and in container gardens too. A newer variety, called a Kong Coleus, grows larger and can tolerate more sun.
There you have it, the ultimate list of the most popular flowers for your flower garden. Having a flower garden is surely a fabulous addition to any home’s landscaping plan. I hope that you’ll use this list to start planning your flower garden today.
