Flowers and Plants Buying Guide

No matter what plants and flowers you favor, there's a type of growing material to fit your preference, as well as complement the architecture of your home, your outdoor time commitments, and the design of your landscape.

Types of Flowers and Plants

Types of Flowers and Plants

Some home gardeners are devoted to their collection of containers, filled to the brim with effusive annuals that last only a single season. Others sing the praise of roses, no matter how much tender loving care they might need. It's one of the rewards of flowers and plants: They are as diverse as people. And if you do enough research -- or digging -- you'll find the type that fits just who you are. If you're an experienced gardener, a little experimenting may help you find a new favorite flower or plant. Take a quick look at these types: bulbs, garden seeds, perennials, roses, shrubs (evergreen and flowering), vines, annuals, and vegetables.

Bulbs

Bulbs are typically planted in the fall and most bloom in the spring; some, however, bloom in summer or fall. Some bulbs will bloom year after year, while others will bloom only once or twice.

Perennials

Perennials can have blooms or feature foliage only; unlike annuals, perennials will come back year after year, as long as they're tended to and planted in the correct hardiness zone.

Vines

Vines may be perennials or annuals, as well as roses; some will bloom, while others simply provide pretty foliage.

Annuals

Unlike perennials, annuals live for just one growing season; they reward, though, with incredibly fast growth. For many home gardeners, annuals (which you can grow from seed or plants) allow people to enjoy plants that would otherwise not be suitable for certain climates.

Product Features

Product Features

Although they are incredibly diverse in both form and function, all flowers and plants have certain product features that affect how well they do in the garden and how much enjoyment you derive from them. For example, a garden that's filled with summertime stunners looks great in the height of the growing season, but it may leave much to be desired in spring and fall. Vegetables that are harvested in July are delicious, but there are rewards to be had with those that mature in May and October, too. As you look to fill your garden, consider growth pattern and bloom season first.

Growth Pattern

Every flower and plant has a different growth pattern. Some will remain tightly constrained, while others will sprawl. You should understand not just what your plant or flower will look like in the first two years but every year that you grow it.

Bloom Season

Plants that flower have a prime bloom season, which will affect how your garden looks from spring to summer to fall. Careful planning can give you blooms throughout the growing season.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

It may seem strange to think about flowers and plants as having purchase considerations, but they do. Those are typically related to how the plant performs in your landscape and what growing constraints you may have. For example, a plant that stays tidy and contained in its growth will fit well into a limited-size garden -- but you will quickly be frustrated by a plant that's unruly and intended for a more free-flowing landscape. So as you're reviewing the potential for different plants and flowers, take into consideration garden size, planting time, and pests and diseases, too.

Garden Size

You have an established size for both your garden bed and your selected plant or flower. Make sure the plant or flower you select will fit in that spot when it is fully grown, both in height and width.

Planting Time

Different plants and flowers will be more or less successful based on if whether they are planted at their ideal times. Check to see what outdoor and soil temperatures are, as well as the length of time from seed to harvest if you're planting vegetables or herbs.

Pests and Diseases

Every flower and plant has particular susceptibility to certain pests, diseases, and critters. Make sure you understand what you can do to promote healthy plant growth and discourage damage.
