Cutting Gardens

Flowers that decorate your landscape and can be cut for your enjoyment inside offer a double delight.

Annuals like snapdragons, zinnias, and coleus are excellent choices for the cutting garden, but don’t forget perennials such as agapanthus, pentas, and gingers for long-lived cutting sources.

If you love having fresh flowers in your home, plan your garden so that something is always blooming. And don’t forget--many of Florida’s tropical plants have uniquely textured or colored leaves that make them great for cutting too!
