Blue And Red Flowers

Blue And Red Flowers Biography
Red, white and blue flowers planted together are an American tradition, a flower combination grown nationwide to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday and a patriotic display to enjoy all season long. Most often these are planted using annual flowers, but you can also design a red, white and blue flower garden using perennials or by mixing annuals and perennials. Here are some guidelines for designing your red, white and blue garden and suggestions for annual and perennial flowers in red, white and blue listed by color.Using Annuals in Your Flower Garden DesignThe reason for using red, white and blue annual flowers is that most of these are more dependable bloomers. Once they start to bloom for the summer, they should stay consistently in bloom until fall. If you are planting a formal design or bedding plant design or planting a specific pattern, annuals are the better choice. In addition to blooming dependably, the annuals will also reach a predictable height and width so you can design exactly what you want. A typical combination might be red, white and blue verbenas or red salvia, blue salvia, and white petunias. Of course, you can also use annuals in an informal display, or mix and match annuals and perennials.
Red, White and Blue Design Using PerennialsYou can plant a red, white and blue flower combination using perennials, but the timing is tricky. Perennials bloom for just a few weeks each year. Perennial flowers may begin to bloom a little early or a little later in the season depending on the weather each year. Sometimes the weather causes a perennial to bloom for an exceptionally short time, thus limiting the display. So you are not guaranteed to have all three colors in bloom at the same time or for a long period.
