Cheap Yet Beautiful Flowers
The beauty that is brought about by flowers cannot be bought. But flowers can be. And the cost that comes with growing one, if you’re interested, will also equate to some bucks. However, the amount you pay for or use in growing such does not necessarily equate to the quality of beauty of flowers that you are able to get. Let us consider some of these beautiful flowers, for example.
Zinnias flower – It breeds gorgeous flowers in your garden and yards. This type of flower loves a well-drained, moist and rich soil. If you put fertilizers in your soil, expect a yield of bright-colored and fuller flowers from Zinnias. Butterflies are mostly attracted to Zinnias, so plant a lot.
How to take good care of Zinnias:
Remove dead flowers of Zinnias so that a new blossom of beautiful Zinnias may grow.
Trimming the back stems of this flower that are growing long will make Zinnias more attractive. Never over trim if you don’t want Zinnias’ appearance to look bad.
You must be aware that Zinnias are at high risk from heavy frost. They can survive only a light frost.
Keep away from insects and other diseases.
If Zinnias are infected, treat it automatically with an organic or chemical insect repellant or fungicide.
Marigold flower – Its appearance can be described as deep-yellow, daisy-like flowers having 2 ½-foot stems.

Sunflower - This flower can be seen anywhere. Although this not big, you will still get attracted to this flower. Are you aware that sunflower plants can grow over 20 feet tall and it can bloom over 2 feet in diameter? In fact, there are festivals for the tallest sunflower grown nowadays.

Deep roots help sunflowers to withstand most droughts. Application of fertilizer will also be good for the sunflower.

Impatient flower – Busy Lizzy is one of the common names for the impatient flower. Impatient flowers, commonly sold at nurseries in North America, are hybrids and treated as annual plants. These are native to tropical Africa and are easily damaged by frosts.
