My personal favorite, zinnias come in lots of bright happy colors and a couple different varieties. Once they start blooming, they’ll provide cheery bouquets until frost.
You can save dahlia tubers year to year by digging them up and storing them in the fall, or buy new! Choose a variety of sizes and heights, and be sure to stake them, as they grow up to 4 feet tall.
Nothing says summer like a bouquet of these golden beauties. Consider multi-stem varieties with slightly smaller blooms for cutting purposes.
Gladioli form dramatic, tall blooms ideal for displaying in arrangements indoors.
