Colorful Life in the Garden
For every spot in the garden, there is a flower that fits. Shady, sunny, dappled sun—each flower has its requirements. Some also need more water and attention than others. There are too many flowers to mention in a short article, but here is a quick guide to some of the most popular flowers for the home gardener.
Annuals, such as pansies, begonias, impatiens, marigolds and petunias, die off in the cold weather, and must be purchased new and planted each year. Marigolds and petunias like hot sun, while begonias and impatiens prefer shade or dappled sun. Be sure to check the instructions before planting. Most annuals will continue to give a beautiful display of flowers all summer long.
Whether you have a sunny or shady yard, temperate or sub-tropical climate, there are many beautiful flowers you can plant and nejoy in your garden.
