The Q&A Archives: Perennial Cutting Garden

Question: I would like to plant a perennial cutting garden to have fresh flowers in the house the entire growing season, can you make some suggestions ? thank you

Answer: Every flower arranger seems to have their own favorites. Here are some perennials to consider for cutting: pyrethrum daisy, peony, purple coneflower, salvia, black eyed Susan, yarrow, delphinium. Hosta foliage and ferns can make nice additions as well. You could also consider roses, sweet peas, zinnias, sunflowers, tithonia, and gladiolas although these are not perennials.
