Red Flowers for your Gardens
Red flowers add a dramatic flare to any garden. This color is the boldest hue on the color wheel and will always be a centerpiece of any exterior or interior landscape. The red flowers for your gardens are a great way to attract pollinators, especially hummingbirds who have attuned sight to bright and bold colors. Red plants make for a great, eye-catching addition to flower gardens, hanging baskets, houseplants, containers as thrillers and spillers, or as ground covers like red creeping thyme.
