Here are Best 10 flowers to keep your garden colorful and blooming this season.
1-Black Eyed Susans
Black eyed susans come from the sunflower family. They are Native to North America and one of the most popular wildflowers grown in the USA. Since 1918, it has been the state flower of Maryland. This flower has been used for traditional herbal medicine just like echinacea. Some species of fungi grow on the roots of the black eyed susan. These flowers are also known as “glorious daisy” possibly because of their resemblance. They are available in various shades of yellow, golden and orange. Imagine a load of gold in the flowerbed, shimmering through the winter days! It is enough to liven up the day don’t you think?!
These pretty flowers bloom until the first frost lasts and some species will continue to bloom even after that. They can also survive the whole season should the temperature stay above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. In order to extend their blooming period, scientists and flowering experts recommend that they should be removed as soon as they begin to wither and dry. In this way the chance for other flowers in the bed to survive will increase. Zinnia grows on fertile and well drained soil that is exposed to direct sunlight. These flowers are beautiful and yet low maintenance making it easy for the housewife who is always short of time.
The Greek philosopher Theophrastus gave the name anemone to this flower. Within the perennial border, they are great late season bloomers that come in a range of colours from white to carmine red. They bloom from the start of July until the frost comes in. Anemones are also known as “daughter of the wind” because it is the wind that helped to open up the flower.
It is not only gardens that are ept vibrant because of sunflowers rather we see sunflowers everywhere bright. They take up good space in a child’s nursery, in the classroom and even on dresses. For centuries, sunflowers have been used to brighten up the living room because of the vibrancy that yellow exudes once you put the stalks in the vase. Besides their look, they can also tolerate mild frost. In fact some species can get through heavy snow as well as heavy frosts. Throughout the colder months, sunflowers provide food to the birds and mammals because of surviving the harsh weather.
