Design tips and flower recommendations for full sun
We combine landscaping and gardening services for our clients who want a superior touch to the art of crafting outside areas. If you love flowers, we can help you create a breathtaking garden in a variety of colors.
Here are five annual flowers we love that can enhance the color of your landscape:
Begonia: Begonias come in a variety of colors ranging from white to pink and red. These flowers work well in full sun, but can also thrive in partial shade. They do not require excessive upkeep, making it easier to maintain them in your garden. They will bloom in the summer.
Cosmos: Cosmos are another option for adding pinks, whites, and purples to your garden. They love full sun and will bloom in the summer. These flowers are especially good if you want the colors to be off the ground, because Cosmos will grow taller and quicker the more they are cut.
Dahlias: Dahlias grow fairly easily, making them a great option for your garden. These stunning flowers can add density to your landscape, as well as an abundance of color. Dahlias can be multicolored, orange, red, pink, yellow, purple or white. They will bloom midsummer through fall.
Pansies: People often plant pansies if they want expressive, bold color in their garden. Pansies can be found in most colors and some are even multi-colored. These flowers bloom in the spring and are frost-resistant, making them great for early spring color.
Snapdragons: Snapdragons are another great option for adding height, dimension, and color to your garden. These flowers love full sun and bloom in the summer in hues of red, pink, orange or yellow.
The exact way to design your full-sun garden will be dependent on your property. If you choose to select plants that will grow tall, then you may need a trellis for them to grow up.
In designing your annual flower garden, determine the area you want to use first. Dig up the space so you will be able to plant directly into the ground. If you plan on using raised beds, then determine the areas where you will be placing the raised beds and fill them with soil. Then you will be prepared to plant. Annual flowers can be planted closer together than perennials because they will only be alive for one year.
