Flowers Information

Flowering plants add color and fragrance to urban and rural landscapes. Whether you're filling a patio container or a backyard border, you'll learn more about blooming annuals, perennials, and bulbs at Yard and Garden Online.

Wishing your yard had more spring color?
Now is a good time to list the daffodils you want to plant next fall. Or consider adding some spring blooming perennials.

Too much shade? 
Don't let a lack of sunshine prevent you from enjoying the pleasures of gardening. The right palette of plants can make a shady nook visually satisfying as well as cool and calming. Hostas and ferns are the most common choices but there are dozens of  other  perennials for shade.
