    To incorporate color using flowers, it’s vital to remember that many perennials, unlike annuals, tend to flower for shorter windows. Design plant combinations so that you’ll have plants in bloom throughout the growing season, instead of a quiet spring, flowery summer and plain-jane fall. This mix is a blend of 18 sturdy wild perennials from Daisies, Black-eyed Susan’s, and Lupines to Sunflower, Mexican Hat, and of course, Purple is the mix for the serious wildflower gardener who doesn't mind waiting a year for bloom but who really wants to invest in a permanent planting that should increase in color year after packed with % pure, fresh wildflower.

    Annual plants germinate, grow, flower, set seed and die all in one growing season. The first frost usually signals the end of the season for annuals and most need to be replanted each year. Some will set seed if the flowers are left to produce seed heads and return the following year. Keep these. For all-season color, interplant annual flowers with reblooming varieties of perennials. The annuals will keep the garden colorful while the perennials come in and out of bloom. In this walkway border, annuals such as marigold, calendula, and zinnia are teamed with perennial coreopsis and daylily.

    Thoughtful use of annuals and perennial flowers provides color, texture, and beauty year-round. Designing with annuals, perennials or a combination of both, Designscapes Colorado will guide you to the right solution to beautify your home and enliven your garden. And our expertise with pots and container gardens is unmatched. Please contact our team of experts who will design a seasonal color. Annuals last only one season, either summer or spring/fall but usually have more color, while perennials will last for many years but usually bloom or have color for a shorter time frame. It’s possible to mix and match from different categories, in fact that’s recommended to make things more interesting.
