Allan’s Plants For Non-Stop Color For 2021

The selection of flowering plants available today is almost endless. For every type of flower there are literally hundreds of varieties with a wide range of colors. Since very few flowering plants stay in bloom all season, gardeners need to select a number of annuals, perennials, flowering trees and shrubs to attain an exciting and beautiful succession of blooms in the garden. Here are a few of my favorite flowering plants. Happy Gardening! -Allan Storjohann
