This plant can come in a vine, bush, or tree. It has dark colored flowers that spring out of the shrubbery to add some color to any area that they are planted. A great decorative vine to create shading with, but know that it is a strong grower and requires trimming and maintenance.
I love lavender. It is so soft and pretty. If you’d like to have a peaceful area in your yard, then you’ll definitely want to include this beautiful plant. There are many different varieties, suited to different climates.
Sunflowers are probably my favorite flower grown in the summer. They become huge and are a great way to provide natural shade. I use them around my chicken yard so my chickens have a nice shaded area to lay on hot summer days without having to stay in the coop.
This is a light blue flower that just makes me smile. It seems so small and dainty but packs a huge punch of color. So if you’d like to add a different color variation to your yard, then you might want to consider periwinkle. It is a creeper and is often used for ground cover.
21. Shasta Daisy
These are your traditional daisies that you are probably use to. They have the yellow center and is surrounded by simple white petals. They are very quaint and add a bit of country charm, in my opinion.
22. Shrub Roses
I love shrub roses. Though they have thorns on them, they are a great way to add some color to your home. I actually have them lining my flower bed in the front of my house. When they are in bloom, my house stands out because of the beautiful pink blooms. To make pruning easy, here's great gardening gloves.
It is very common to find a lot of pink, red, and white flowers in bloom during the summer. But some people prefer purple or blue. If you are someone looking for purple blooms to add color to your yard, then consider going with Aster.
This is another favorite plant of mine. I love hibiscus plants because they are unique and colorful. Also, if you keep them in a container, you can bring them indoors over the winter so you can keep them year after year. They make marvelous scrubs and with a plethora of color variations, careful selection and placement can make you the envy of the neighborhood.
25. Scarlet Sage
This is another plant my grandmother grew a lot of in her yard. The unique ways these flowers line the stem of the plant and their bright red color surely do make a house pop from the street view.
26. Purple Coneflower
This plant belongs to the daisy family. It looks very much like a daisy with a large center surrounded by simple petals. Though these petals are purple, they actually droop a little which gives the flower its cone shape.
This flower has a dark green foliage at the base. Then little yellow flowers sprout out of the green foliage to add an amazing burst of color.
This is a really fun flower. It looks like color pom poms. But the really cool thing is that you can grow this in a giant version and the rounded blooms will get to be huge.
This flower is often times called the Peruvian Lily or Lily of the Incas. It looks like a traditional lily in shape but has a unique color variation that adds a beautiful color to any space.
These are subtle yet beautiful plants. They often grown along borders in flower gardens and are also great when used in dried flower arrangements.
31. Baby’s Breath
Have you ever gotten a dozen roses or even a single rose? Then you know what a great accent baby’s breath can be. I also love it because it lasts for a long time. It certainly outlives the rose that it accompanies.
32. Bird of Paradise
This is a very unique plant. It looks rather odd at first glance. Then once you examine it, you realize that the blooms actually resemble a bright colored bird sitting on the stem of a flower.
33. Calla Lilly
Calla Lilies are often used to decorate around Easter time or even as an accent in bouquets for special occasions such as weddings. So if you’d like a delicate flower to put a beautiful flower arrangement over the top, then you might want to consider growing these.
