A well-planned garden or lawn consists of a myriad of options. Ranging from plants that produce vibrant coloured flowers to attract bees and butterflies, to plants that produce juicy fruits or berries. However, everybody’s main attraction is the plants that blossom all year round (365 days) and keep their grass colourful in contrast, the mood happier.
An Indian garden like its own culture is diverse and vibrant.
Here are some plants that flower 365 days:
Coneflowers are a favourite of passionate gardeners. They have won them over, unlike any other perennials. Coneflowers develop easy, and you can pick your favourite hue from a large variety. This is considered one of the best 365 days of flowering plants in India.
Amaranth is another tough contender to beat. Another all year round (365 days flowering) plant, it blossoms clover-like. Its flowers make a great addition to bouquets Amaranth is available in many hues such as purple, white, pink or lilac. By placing this plant in your garden, a happy and colourful tone can be easily set.
3. Purple Coralbells
Purple coralbells contain purple flowers. They are widely planted, dependable and a showy perennial variety for your garden.
4. Stella de Oro Daylily
Stella has sword-shaped leaves that support Lillies with flashy and vibrant colours which are a definite eye-catcher. Not only the garden, but Stella De Oro Daylily also grow trouble-free in jars or large bottles. Every stem has a bud that opens a day after the other. These Stellas produce lilies that can last up to five months, which is excessive for lily plants.
5. Purple-Leaved Beardtongue
As the name suggests, purple-leaved beardtongue sports purple leaves that further support flowers of white colour. They are not that tall but do grow to a height of two feet.
6. Profusion Zinnias
Most people who grow Profusion Zinnias cut them up quite often to make them an addition in their bouquets. These zinnias too, like the plants mentioned earlier, contain a wide variety of hues to pick from. They flourish the best in hot climates but hold on til fall easily, still flowering, without letting the change in weather affect them. This is a must-have in the garden as it is one of the best 365 days flowering plants in India.
7. Perennial Hibiscus
Perennial hibiscus is a reproduce of the wildflowers that are native towards the East and the South. Its wide range of colours include white, deep red, pink and they can reach heights up to eight feet.
8. Black-eyed Susan
From North America, it is best known for (besides its vibrant yellow colour addition to the garden) its reproductive capabilities. They have a blanketing feature and form a layer of their sun-flowery flowers over the entire fields that they are placed in.
9. Threadleaf Tickseed
Rather bushier as compared to the aforementioned flowering plants, threadleaf tickseed does not hold back in producing bright yellow flowers. It is one of the most adamant plants that survive and grow through any condition.
10. Geranium Cranesbill
This stunning and vibrant flower grows in dry shade and blooms a perfect blue hue with a white-pink tap
Unlike Geranium Cranesbill, it is also possible to grow Barrenwort in dry shade and does not take too much sunlight. Its extracts are occasionally used as an aphrodisiac
11. Mourning Widow
Dry shade plants that when grown near trees and shrubs, provide a nice colour contrast to their blackish flowers.
12. Bleeding Heart
The bleeding heart requires soft, moist soil, and, once it blooms, is deficient maintenance. Delicate pink blooms cut in the heart are such a beautiful addition to any garden
13. Solomon’s Seal
Maybe one of the easiest plants to grow in an Indian garden, Solomon’s Seal looks so elegant with its curling bell-like flowers and delicately arching leaves. Solomon’s seal is a 365 days flowering plant.
14. Butcher’s Broom
Butcher’s Broom, another commonly grown flowering plant in Indian gardens, can thrive in low-shade areas and needs moist soil to grow.
It is a winter flower that works very well in deep shade areas but needs moist soil to survive, plus because the name suggests that the blooms look like pretty drops of snow.
16. Bigroot Geranium
Bigroot Geranium grows up to twelve inches but laterally spreads to the double of that, about twenty-four inches. It forms a brilliant ground cover and is resistant to weed.
Because of its religious significance, Marigold is an auspicious flower for Indian Gardens. Growing is also very simple, and can also be quickly tended in the lowest maintenance gardens. What it wants is plenty of sunshine and black soil abundant in hummus
This is one of the most frequent flowering plants we see creeping up Indian homes’ walls or gates. Hardy bougainvillaea doesn’t need much water or care, and can grow pretty much on its own and do so very quickly! What it needs is a periodic pruning to prevent it from looking too wild now and then.
