Description

Perennial Garden Plants for Bouquets

The Cutting Garden

Pollyann’s

Bouquets speak without language and can fill rooms with color, air with fragrance and hearts with the delight of emotions.

Planting a perennial cutting garden gives the gardener the ability of unspoken language. Yet, not all plants can stand up to cutting. Weak stems let flowers droop. Some perennials can’t keep their blooms open in a vase of water. The beauty of Allium with the fragrance of onions isn’t meant for bouquets. A spike of half opened flowers leaves the bouquet less than desirable. So there are choices not meant for bouquets.

The Cutting Garden should be planted with Perennials that hold up for bouquets with strong stems and an array of colors and some with nice fragrances. I have chosen an array of cutting plants to make a garden fun to cut and gather as well as attractive in a garden.

Remember to choose for your zone and look at the different varieties of each plant to be sure you are getting a strong cutting variety. Some of the chosen plants will have more than one that will be acceptable for use and some varieties will not work. Look for strength, long stems and good color and the possibility of fragrance (not all will be fragrant so mix the fragrant ones with non-fragrant).

When planting a cutting garden, use more than one plant. I use three to five of the same plant so that they are usually available to cut as well as be seen in the garden. More plants make more bouquets.

I have developed this application to provide my expertise for plant choices, whether for size, color or fragrance. Over 20 years of research, planting, monitoring and risk taking with perennials became my obsession.

During those years, I became quite frustrated at nurseries when the clerks had less knowledge than I had so I wanted to implement a method of having the information “IN MY HAND” to get what I needed. This is the information and now it can go with anyone to find plants for a “Perennial Garden Plants for Bouquets ”.

Plants were chosen for their aesthetic qualities as well as their individual strengths and placed in this format:

Name (botanical and common)

Zone (temperature requirements)

Bloom time (length, duration of bloom or time that flowers are visible)

Height (inches and centimeters)

Bloom size (I find this very important and rarely noted on nursery tags)

Planting Space (amount of space in the garden)

Soil (requirements for best growth)

Sun (how much sun)

Bloom duration (yes, the length of blooming is important to any garden)

Habit (how the plant acts in it’s own space)

Use (bouquets, fragrance, border plants, middle ground or background, foliage)

Recommended (plants that would stand out)

Companion plants (complimentary plants for color, size or season)

Pronunciation guide (how to say the name)

Deadhead (how to or whether to snip off spent blooms)

Cutback (techniques for caring for the plant)

Propagation method (how to get the plant to reproduce)

Pest (what I know about bugs)

Disease (what I know about afflictions)

Ecology notes (special interest about the plant, TOXICITY)

Gardener’s tip (something I think may be useful)

Pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Without clawing through hundreds of plant books (I have already done that) or reading online text for hours (hundreds of hours) you can choose perennial plants.

This format should make it easy to take straight to any nursery (on foot or online) and ask, show or look for the correct perennial plant(s). 20 years of shopping, researching, and growing perennials are formatted for gardeners and landscapers to ease the frustration of “not knowing”.

Explore the varieties and colors. Smell the fragrance. Get the right size. And end the drama.

Are you ready to plant? Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Peace, Pollyann
