The Q&A Archives: Cut Flowers

Question: What types of annuals and perennials can I plant to get a good variety of cut flowers? I have full sun, partial sun/shade and good soil in my garden.

Answer: Some of the best cutting flowers for sunny beds include Snapdragon, Pot Marigold, China Aster, Cornflower, Larkspur, Cosmos, Lisianthus, Sweet Pea, Dahlia, Stock, Phlox, Scabiosa and Zinnia. Partially sunny beds can include Tuberose, Gerbera, Lily, Japanese Anemone, and Dianthus. Many of these flowers are especially fragrant and have a long vase life. Enjoy your cutting garden!
