Eye-catching flowers for decorating garden

Postby jerrysherry » Sun Aug 18, 2013 9:41 pm

for the Backyard Gardens(spam link removed), you can add flowers. The fleshy leaves and bright flowers make sedum a popular perennial. It is practically foolproof, and offers spectacular color during the latter part of the growing season when most other flowers are fading.

Pincushion flower, or scabiosa, serves up dainty blue flowers all summer and into fall, making it one of the longest-lasting bloomers in the perennial bed. It likes sun or partial shade, and is best at the front of the bed. The foot-tall variety 'Blue Butterfly' stands up to heat best.

Often sweetly fragrant, the peony is a very long-lived plant that forms 2- to 4-foot-tall clumps in shrublike bunches. Its numerous varieties offer a wide range of colors -- almost every shade except blue -- with some bicolors, and blooming periods from late spring to early summer.

Thanks for the suggestions... and again, wish there were pictures here instead of a link to your own site.
