Answer: Consider first whether you want all your flowers to come into bloom at the same time (for a wedding, for example) or if you want continuous bloom throughout the summer. <br><br>Here are some good, reliable annuals with relatively long bloom seasons: zinnia, cosmos, scabiosa, calendula, cornflower, cleome, globe amaranth. Dwarf sunflowers, asters, annual foxglove, larkspur and snapdragons are also good choices. And don't forget baby's breath (Gypsophila).<br><br>There are some great books available on growing cut flowers; your library or bookstore should carry a selection.
