The Best Flowers to Plant That Will Survive In Colorado

The Best Flowers to Plant That Will Survive In Colorado

The warm weather has finally arrived. If you are like most homeowners in Colorado, you will soon turn your attention to planting flowers around the perimeter of your house and maybe even in a flower garden. But Colorado's dramatic weather changes can present some unique challenges.

The best approach is to plant all-season perennials in combination with mid-summer/fall perennials. Adding some sturdy annuals with staggered bloom times will help you assemble a beautiful flower garden. The best part about this planting strategy is that the newly-planted flowers will actually last. You won't have to keep re-planting them over and over again as the seasons change. Here are some of the best flowers you can plant in your garden. 

Perfect Perennials

Perennials are the perfect flower for Colorado's unique climate and landscape. You'll love the look of Dianthus perennials. They reach upwards of 3 feet tall and stretch out to 18 inches in width. Dianthus flowers bloom in the spring and summer. Aside from adding beauty to your property, this flower will also attract all different types of birds.

If you would like a gorgeous blue flower in your garden or landscaping, look no further than the Rocky Mountain Penstemon. This lovely flower reaches a maximum of 3 feet in height. Other beautiful perennials that can withstand Colorado's summer heat include the Purple Coneflower, the Oxeye Daisy, the Poppy Mallow and Colorado's state flower, the Rocky Mountain Columbine.

Beautiful Annuals

Add some Disacia flowers to your garden and you'll enjoy a visual display unlike any other. This annual comes in all sorts of colors, ranging from rich reds to soft whites, lilac and apricot. The addition of an Angelonia flower will do wonders for your property's curb appeal. This flower stands 1 to 3 feet in height, draws the attention of birds and requires little maintenance.

If you are worried about drought affecting your flower garden, put those fears to rest by planting Gazania flowers. They love the sun so they are quite tolerant to drought. Gazanias bloom from the spring to the fall and serve as the perfect form of eye candy.

Those who are in search of a flower that blooms with stunning colors in the summer and fall will adore New Guinea Impatiens. These flowers are available in an array of colors, ranging from red/pink to orange, white and blue. Another excellent summer bloomer is the Zinnia flower. It grows quite easily in an array of soil types and requires little attention.
