Gardening is always a fun, beneficial hobby to have but it cannot hurt to make things a bit more artistic in the garden.
That may sound odd, but adding some unique flowers to our collection makes things very aesthetically pleasing and also can start some great conversation.
Shake things up in our gardens with some of these wonderful flowers!
The Blue Honeywort
This plant is so vibrant! It really stands out because of its blue leaves and purple flowers. Also, it matures quickly, is easy to start from seeds, and is considered very durable.
White Alpine Strawberries
You definitely do not see every day. Instead of the traditional, red strawberry, these berries turn a light pink when they are ripe. They are often considered even sweeter than your everyday strawberry and have a slight pineapple taste. They are fairly simple to grow and are hardy in zones 3a to 8b. These delicious plants produce during the summer.
The Fernleaf Fiddleneck
This plant looks like something straight from a cartoon with its lavender color, curled look, and fuzz feel. They do not require much care at all seeing that they tend to do very well when left alone completely.
Basically, these look like bright purple balls, made of stars, at the end of a stem. They are so fun! If you choose to plant them remember that they need to be planted right after the last frost of spring.
I have to say, these flowers just seem wacky, like a circus act. But that is what makes them so great! The blue passionflower does best in warm climates. In fact, the seeds germinate in soil that is warm and slightly wet and you should only need a few seeds because the flower’s vines are large and plentiful.
Prickly Caterpillar Beans
These plants actually have a history of being a great conversation starter in the garden. It is said that they were often grown in the 1880’s for the purpose of surprising guests. It truly is a unique, vine-like, prickly plant.
Not only is this one different, it is also a vegetable. Its taste is often described as nutty. It is a win-win! You get to eat it and it is a fantastic looking plant.
The Black Bat Flower
This flower is much more than a flower. It has a dark coloring, with tones of purple, brown, green, and black. The seeds are a bit pricey but it is completely worth it!
Do you remember ever picking a dandelion and blowing on it while making a wish? Well, add some more magic to your garden! Giant dandelions can handle even the craziest wishes. They are a worthy addition.
Bleeding Heart Flower
These are very wonderful looking flowers. They look like little hearts hanging off of a vine. They will bloom in the latter half of spring and the earlier half of summer.
