I am planning a cut flower garden for my New England home. I would like a combiniation of annuals and perennials for full sun. What would you recommend for my zone 5-6 garden?

There are so many to choose from, it really depends on what you like. Here are some of my favorites that should perform well in many soil conditions: sunflowers (choose varieties labeled for cutting; they lack messy pollen), bachelor buttons, zinnia, larkspur, tithonia, cosmos, baby's breath, stock, statice, daylilies, achillea, and asters.
