Contrary to popular belief, there are many flowers that bloom around the year in times that aren’t Spring and Summer. Summer and Spring are popular gardening seasons and bring colourful and vibrant plants to life, but Autumn and Winter also offer a wide range of flowers to keep gardens bright. We’ve gathered a list of seasonal flowers to help gardeners all year round and created the infographic below!
1 Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna’ from the mildly aromatic silvery green leaves to the violet flower spikes with purple stems. Bees love the flowers that stay looking sharp long after the petals fall, thanks to papery bracts that hold their colour. Dead-heading – either little and often or in one go – encourages new flowering side-shoots till October. 'Caradonna’ loves sun; use it as a purple ribbon through late season grasses or, at 18in (45cm), it is the perfect centrepiece for a pot.
