Planning a cutting garden

What are the best bulbs, bushes or seeds to plant for a cutting garden in New England? I want it to last the entire season from May to October. I love calla lillies, peonies, sunflowers, gladiolas, roses, tulips, etc. I want a nice mix of colors to decorate my home with.

If you do an advanced search in our plant encyclopedia and select for cut flowers as a special feature and indicate your Hardiness Zone, you'll get a list of plants adapted as cut flowers in your locale.
