Even on the Gulf Coast, flowers aren’t as prolific in the winter.  When the blooms slow down, I like to add a few winter annuals for some color.  Most of the new plants decided to take a winter nap and have recently opened up for spring, doubling the flower power.

  1. I have been enjoying seeing everyone else’s pansies and haven’t tried any here. I think they might roast! The dianthus is beautiful as well, what are the yellow and orange flowers?

    • Pansies are only good in the winter and I get them every once in awhile. Dianthus work well for fall through winter and the animals don’t eat them. I had to look for the plant labels as I know they will not last. The yellow is Calendula and orange is a Strawflower.

      • A ha, I sort of recognized those, my mother used to grow Strawflowers hoping for fabulous dried arrangements. I can’t recall any fabulous arrangements! maybe 3 flowers. I did grow Dianthus in Atlanta sometimes but it very often got turned to mush by the frost. I have had Coleus and Herbs and bromeliads this winter, I was thinking I should get some flowers it is pretty foliagey.
