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.
Beauty of Indian Flowers
Different regions are known for their range and specifications of flowers. Likewise, India is known for its colorful flowers. Due to India’s diverse climates and a large area, it can produce thousands of flower species. India has its most beautiful and bright flowers in regions like Kashmir, Kanyakumari, Ladakh, and Sri Ganganagar.
Flowers and Indian Culture
Indian flowers are not only beautiful, but they hold religious and cultural importance in their society. They present flowers as a symbol of their love and devotion to their gods and use them to décor their cultural and religious events. Other than spring and summer, one can find beautiful flowers in India all-year-round.
