My favorite flowers for a cutting garden! Easy to start, blooms all season long, great for cutting and filling your garden with color! Dahlia, zinnia, sunflower, daisy, and other hardy, low-maintenance plants with LOTS of flowers.

An early summer border of mixed annuals and perennials, including zinnias, lillies, echinacea (coneflower), and sedge grasses, explodes with color at sunrise along the edge of a manicured residential backyard lawn near Seattle, with a white arbor in the soft focus background.
