This Flower Finder
Gives Great Container Gardening Choices:
W-Z

Flower Finder has the most sought after flowers in our plant guides-index. Let's use it to boost our imagination into a great and wonderful Container Garden.

Whether it's a cheap plastic planter or a solitary deck plant, you can make it into your own pride and joy. Just because you've never put together some collection of exotic plants into a container gardening combination you'd see in Garden Gate,.....

PRESS ON!!

We all have to start somewhere!

Most flower planting guides tons of gardening information that can be useful. However, in these plant identification guides, you'll find only what you need to know to choose the right flowers for planter gardening.

One quick note before you start the hunt. Try to pay close attention to the plant identification guide and tags located on the flower. If there is a choice between a dwarf variety or normal, choose the dwarf variety.

I list in the flower finder below, which ones grow as dwarfs. However, it's always easy to forget when you get caught up in the moment of flower- buying at your local nursery.

Happy Hunting!!
