What kind of flowers do you enjoy growing around your home?

I've always loved growing roses. They smell and look so beautiful in the garden. Ive grown lavender, red, yellow, and pink. I know that blue roses are hybrids but they look so unnatural in color.

  • I'd adore any roses. I'd Love a blue rose. I do have a rose bush my DD gave me. I hope bugs don't do it in.. Around here we have petunias, calla lilies, phlox, mulva, daylilies, honeysuckle, Holy hocks, dahlias, hibiscus, hopefully soon some morning glories.

  • I don't have a green thumb, I live in an Apt with little sun with little room. I don't know what I could grow in my Apt so I don't have any flowers

  • I live in an apartment too. But they let you have flowers in the yard as long as you build a flower bed for them to be in so they don't get mowed down when the people who mow the lawn come.

  • I love growing roses! I am still new to it. But love it! I need to get a book and read about trimming them. That is mainly all I have in at my house. We have lived her for about four years. We built this house and are still working on the porches and front deck. So the flower beds have had to wait. however i do make a point to grow petunias every year. I am not a huge fan of them but my hubby loves them and I am good at growing them. they are usually huge by the end of the season.
