Flowers in bloom

Zinnias. Mom had a row of these in her garden every year to add colour to the space. They seem to tolerate the heat. Will see how they manage the well-drained soil.

Gaillardia, also called blanket flower, blooming in several parts of my garden. They bloom in late May and continue all the way to September, even in drought and sandy soil.

Candytuft, a new plant for my flowerbeds. I look for drought-tolerant plants wherever possible.

    Love the flowers, especially gallardia. I must mark that one down and try it. I like flowers that bloom all season, especially when the next 8 months are cold and snowy!

      Thank you Pam. Perhaps the trick is to find flowering plants native to your region. Check if nurseries have gaillardia.
