Some gardeners are amazed by perennials, with all their varieties of bloom type, color, and size. Other people turn to a striking collection of annuals for a burst of color throughout the growing season. Bulbs, too, supply texture, color, and bloom variety for your garden. And roses have captivated gardeners worldwide for centuries. Whatever garden flowers you prefer -- or if you like them all -- we have inspiration and practical advice for you. Every gardener can benefit from our tips to grow picture-perfect annuals, perennials, bulbs, and roses in the garden; we have all the tips organized for you. Each year, breeders introduce new varieties of every type of garden flower -- some with better disease resistance, others with new colors or habits. If you want the latest and greatest garden flowers in your yard, we have new perennials, annuals, and roses, among others. It's often hard to choose the right garden flowers for the right conditions—sun or shade. We have them organized by plant type and sun/shade amount, as well as bloom time. That means you'll be able to spend more time enjoying even more beautiful blooms in your garden, from spring through summer and into autumn.
