If you live in a frost-free region, this flower will add plenty of color to your landscaping.

Soft to the touch, this velvet-like greenery is a perfect filler plant for mixed containers. They grow 9 inches tall and is flourishes under the winter sun.

A hardy plant, these yellow flowered plants prefer light shade and when cared for properly, will multiple each year, adding color after color to your landscape.



3. SNAPDRAGON
Bring a pop of color to your outdoor space or sunroom with bright snapdragons. Available in multiple sizes and varieties, snapdragons are outstanding flowers for any cut or potted arrangement. Appreciating cool moist weather, snapdragons come in an array of white, yellow, pink, red, orange, pink and purple colors.
