“Those can all grow pretty much anywhere,” Irving tells mbg. “They all love heat so they could be started now for a summer garden.”
Irving explains that these flowers are good for beginners because their larger seeds are more likely to bloom successfully: “They usually have high germination rates, which means that they sprout at a higher rate than other plants.”
She adds that these flowers all play nicely with one another and would be happy to be planted side-by-side in a small garden plot. The best part? Their diverse shapes and colors make for a beautiful, balanced homemade bouquet when cut and arranged together.
