Easy To Grow Flowers To Brighten Up Your Garden
Looking for some low maintenance flowers to brighten up your garden this spring? Here are some easy to grow flowers that are still high on impact!
Sunflowers are one of the most iconic flowers. They boast stunning visuals whilst still being very easy to care for.
“Sunflowers are a summer classic, and we’re used to eating their seeds, but they’re often neglected as a garden staple. They shouldn’t be. The sunflower can grow up to 10 feet tall, making for incredible coverage in summer months.” - One Country
Don’t have that much room in your garden? Consider a smaller variety of sunflower. There are now dwarf, mid-sized and even Teddy Bear sunflowers!
Pansies are one of the most resilient perennials.
“Especially when purchased as bedding plants, pansies are very easy to grow and require only a minimum of care to provide a very long flowering season.” - Burpee.com
In fact, they are so sturdy, they’ve even been known to survive a light dusting of snow. Check out our list of the best plant species for Canadians year-round!
Marigolds are a bright and happy flower that will add energy to any landscape.
“Cheerful marigolds are easy to grow in sunny spots, brightening your garden with shades of yellow, red and gold as they bloom all summer long.” - HGTV
Marigolds are known for their resilience as well. They can last well into the fall months and can even hold up in hot, dry weather.
Black-eyed Susans are a great choice for those who want colourful impact but have limited space.
“They’re almost perfect perennials: They’re not fussy, have a long bloom time, and boast a cheery look that works in any garden, no matter the style.” - Country Living
Many confuse black-eyed susans with sunflowers since they have a dark center and are yellow in colour. While they are technically part of the same family, black-eyed Susans are much smaller and live longer.
They are recognizable by their raised center & bright yellow petals. They are also known to attract butterflies! How’s that for adding colour to your garden?
If you’re new to gardening or just don’t have the time, choose one of these flower varieties. They’re easy to care for and guaranteed to brighten your day!
