Different Flowers of the World
There are different types of flowers in the world. If you try to make a list of flower names, you will find it to be never-ending. There are perennial flowers that bloom year after year. These never need replantation and become permanent residents of your garden. Then come the annual flowers that bloom for just a single season and then die out. You need to replant them every year, or maybe choose different flower varieties for your garden.
Apart from these types, you will find that they are divided into spring, summer, fall, and a few as winter flowers. There are different types of spring flowers that are not only beautiful, but also very fragrant. They are a sign of renewal of life after a long winter. Most of the flowers planted in spring are grown from bulbs. There can be bushes, ground covers, perennials, shrubs, as well as trees.
Summer flowering plants have brilliant colors that add vibrant beauty to a landscape design. They survive the summer heat and need minimum care. You can grow these in patio pots, window boxes, or hanging baskets. You can even grow them outdoors and enjoy their beauty. You can find many perennial flowers that bloom all summer.
Fall flower gardens are full of annual and perennial varieties. These are an affordable luxury for every flower enthusiast. Most of the fall blooming flowers are grown from bulbs. You can speak to your local plant nursery and find some interesting fall flowering bulbs for your garden.
