Grow a Garden with Flowers Always in Bloom

By: Arlene Castro

Now that we are in Spring, flower fever has begun. I don't know about you but I love planting flowers. I came across an article in 5280 Home Magazine and had to share this helpful information. If you want to grow a flower garden always bursting in color the entire season then these flowers will help to achieve that goal. Here is a list of flowers to plant:

Basket of GoldBlue Flax

Basket of Gold                                                              Blue Flax

Tri-Color Butterfly BushPurple Dome AsterTri-Color Butterfly Bush                                               Purple Dome Aster


In May: Basket of Gold, Dwarf Daylily, Front Range Penstemon

In June: Dwarf Cranesbill, Hudsker Red Penstemon, Blue Flax

In July: Tri-Color Butterfly Bush, Red Knockout Rose, Osteospermums

In August: Hummingbird Trumpet, Sunset Hyssop, Mexican Sage

In September: Purple Dome Aster, Chocolate Flower, Joe Pye Weed


Local garden experts shared this bit of advice of easiest plants to keep alive in the Front Range:

  • Red Valerian (perennial) blooms from May until frost
  • Ice Plant (low growing ground cover) can handle direct sun exposure
  • Blanket Flower (Sunflower origin) has an extended bloom time and doesn't need much water

I hope this information is helpful in making your garden more colorful. We are always here to help you with any real estate related questions including gardening.


Happy Mother's Day & Happy Spring!
