8 Cheap Flowers to Plant That Will Make Your Garden Pop


Among the many self-seeding annual plants that return year after year with little to no work on your part is cleome. Large pink, purple, or white flowers adorn its 4 foot or more stems, which are also known as spiderflowers due to their resemblance to spiders.


Another prolific self-seeder that colonizes your garden year after year is celosia. If so, you're in luck since this plant's vibrantly coloured blossoms are simply delightful. They come in a range of hues, including cream, orange, yellow, and burgundy, crimson, magenta, and pink.


Because of their attractive blossoms, lilies (Lilium spp.) hold a particular place in the hearts of many gardeners. They are not only colourful and cheery, but they also come in a variety of hues, such as pink, purple, red, orange, and yellow.

Sweet Autumn Clematis

Clematis terniflora, also known as Sweet Autumn Clematis, grows quickly and is practically covered in white flowers that like stars in the late summer and early fall. The beautiful silvery seedheads replace the aromatic blooms.

Jerusalem Artichoke

Neither Jerusalem nor artichokes are associated with the Jerusalem Artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus). It's a perennial sunflower that has roots, or edible tubers. It can spread across wide fields, which is why some have referred to it as a weed.

Castor Bean Plant

Even in chilly areas, the castor bean plant (Ricinus communis) adds a dash of tropical drama to any area. While it grows quickly as an annual elsewhere, reaching 8 to 10 feet in a single growing season, it is a hardy perennial that resembles a tree in Zones 9 11.

Pampas Grass

The resilient and lovely Pampas Grass (Cortaderia sellouana) has many positive qualities, but there are also certain things to be aware of. Though some cultivars are only half that size, this ornamental grass reaches heights of 10 to 12 feet and widths of 5 feet.


With its striking beauty, Lamium (Lamium maculatum) sets itself apart from many other groundcover plants and attracts attention rather than being overlooked by other flora. The key is in its leaf, which varies in hue and pattern depending on the kind.
