Jenny Niblock said...

I love peonies!!

Barbara said...

The spring flowers are always so welcome after a cold bleak winter, and the one standout I have always loved is the daffodil with its happy color and lovely scent, but then I love all flowers as they wax and wane through the seasons. The daffodils blooming across the road from the Pentagon after 9/11 brought those of us who were there us so much hope and promise in the year following the tragedy.

CC said...

I love tuberoses!

Malinda said...

My favorite garden plant is lamium. It has purple, pink or white flowers that appear from early spring until late fall, lovely colored leaves, and is a cheerful thing, growing in pots, as a ground cover, in shady or sunny spots. It's not a show stopper, but more like a faithful old friend, always there when you need a little color!
