Growing flowers for bouquets, centerpieces and fresh floral arrangements is so rewarding. Not only can you enliven living spaces with fresh flowers, but can delight friends and neighbors with fresh flower bouquets. With some planning, you can have a steady supply of fresh flowers for cutting from spring to fall. The best flowers for cutting have sturdy stems and hold up well in the vase. When you shop for cut flower plants to buy, first make sure they'll grow in your hardiness zone. Next, consider bloom times. Other considerations for cut flowers to grow in the garden are flower colors, height, soil requirements, light requirements and your personal preference.
