Favorite Flowers 2014

Nasturtium

Growing the nasturtium from seed in early spring is rewarding not only because it is an inexpensive seed but because it is easy to grow. A longtime favorite to add to salads and borders.

Joe Pye Weed

This plant reseeds itself each year and grows with no maintenance. I love how it fits in perfectly with my hydrangea shrubs that grow next to the plant. The butterflies also love this bloom.

Scented Geranium

The blooms on many of the scented geraniums are super unique and nothing like your grandma’s flower. I also love the different foliage on each plant.

Dahlias

Living in hardiness zone five been means growing dahlias takes a little more work. Although the root will have to be dug up and stored for the winter it is well worth the show it puts on in the early summer through hard frost of autumn.

Vinca

Vinca Vinca

 

This was my first year to grow the annual Vinca. I was super impressed with the low maintenance and it’s tolerance to dry summer heat in my raised beds. This plant provided blooms with color all season.

Begonia

Begonia

Begonias are a fun flower to grow because they resemble the rose. they make great flowers on patios and decks potted in partial shade
containers.

Naked Ladies

Not only is the name fun to say, but they are also ecstatic to see pop up in late summer out of nowhere! The dainty little blooms on a long steam can be a pleasant welcome to any landscape.
