They thrive in areas with adequate drainage and sunlight. If the conditions are favorable, they can continue to bloom for about 50 years!

Dahlias

Who wouldn’t adore Dahlias? But did you know that before, Dahlias were considered vegetables?

It’s because the tubers of Dahlias are actually edible. Has anyone tried it?

Daylilies

Daylilies are perennial plants. Most species bloom in the early morning and wither the following night.

In China, they cook some daylily flowers and use them as ingredients.

Geranium

Geraniums thrive with full sun and well-moist soil. If you live in a condo or apartment, you can plant Geraniums in a planter box.

They bloom from early spring until late fall.

Because if you touch it or even brush the tip of your finger on its seed pod, it will shoot its seeds.

The force is so strong that the seeds can reach as much as ten feet away! Cool!
