Patio edged with flower garden



There are many flowers that bloom throughout the year but do not need to be planted each year. These are called perennial plants. Perennials bloom in their own season, where annuals bloom all summer long, and then annuals have to be replanted again the next year.

A few annuals will re-seed themselves, like marigolds, alysum, snapdragons, and cosmos etc. These plants will often take over an area if you aren't particularly careful with them. Other annuals like petunias have to be planted each year.

Desert plants bloom at various times of the year and add a unique beauty all their own.

Bulbs like crocus, daffodils, hyacinths, tulips etc bloom in the early spring.

The biggest drawback I have found with bulb plants is that the pesky gophers just love to eat their bulbs. If you find a way to rid the lawn and gardens of this pest, I'd sure like to know about it.

Note: Someone just told me how to deal with gophers and I thought I'd share the idea with you. Buy plastic plumbing pipe that is large enough to hold your bulb and cut it in lengths 3-6 inch lengths and plant your bulbs inside the pipe. The gophers won't find the bulbs that way. I'm going to try that and will report on the results later.

Later in the year, there are perennial plants to choose from, such as black-eyed Susan, bleeding hearts, daisies, cushion mums, larger and taller chrysanthemums, roses, carnations, and a myriad of other flowers.

You can literally keep your yard in constant color using perennial plantings. Don't forget to feed some nutrients to your decorative-flower-gardens in early spring and every couple weeks. Plants will grow and mature much quicker with proper watering and nutritional feedings.

The weeping yucca blooms for about 60 days. I especially liked this plant for the contrast in color.
