Looking to spice up your garden this spring? Below are a handful of colorful annual blooms to brighten any flower bed.
Cornflowers, also known as Bachelor’s Buttons, are a long stemmed blue flower sure to add a color pop to your bed. They bloom through summer, so sprinkle them throughout your plantings for a full season of stunning color.
Begonias bloom in fierce reds and pretty pinks from May through October. Add a bed or pot by the front door for fiery petals until fall.
Pansies are whimsical, multi-colored blossoms that thrive in partial shade. Most die out by the summer’s end but a few varieties will hold strong until fall.
