Flowers to pretty the garden and the home

  A garden full of flowers is a sight to behold, but it is nice to be able to take some of that colour and variety into the house in the form of cut flowers. Here are a selection;

Salvia (Perenial Sage)
Perenial Sage (salvia)  -  It starts flowering in early summer and continues through early autumn if you keep cutting the faded flowers off

Yarrow - it's beautiful and tough, producing flat-topped clusters of yellow, orange, red, pink, or white flowers throughout the summer.

Garden Phlox
Garden Phlox - large truses of fragrant flowers from summer to autumn.
Star Gazer
Lily- Lilies such as 'Star Gazer'. Their star-shaped blooms appear in a number of shades, from pink and red to orange, yellow, and bicolors
Bearded Iris
Bearded iris (also called German iris) provides a striking vertical accent with its stiff sword-shaped leaves. Flowers colours run the rainbow from deep burgundy red to pastel pinks and yellows, to every shade of blue and violet
