Blue Flag Iris

These long-lasting and aromatic flowers come in vivid and deep colors. Blue flag iris grows from four to seven feet tall at ripeness forming three to five feet large bunches of greenery. I have also planted these flowers in my home and I can assure you that they are very easy to grow and require very low maintenance. They can also adjust in moist soil conditions. As they are durable flowers so you will also find them in different and stunning floral arrangements. Although blue flag iris is native to Greece but it has adapted very well with other climates as well.

Anthurium

The most common and popular variety of Anthurium is pink flamingo anthurium which belongs to arum family. The facts that make these flowers favorite are their fresh colors, shape and long life. Anthurium has several species having flowers of different colors ranging from pink to dark ruby-red. As far as size of these plants is concerned, it also vary from specie to specie as some are 12 to 18 inches in height and some others are 3 to 5 feet tall. All species of these plants have ever-green and heart shaped leaves having a large size.

Moss Verbena

This is my favorite tropical flower plant that produces beautiful and delicate flowers having white, red and pink colors. Moss verbena grows quickly and helps in filling bare spots of garden. I have planted moss verbena in my garden because they attract butterflies and give a more natural and beautiful look to my garden. These flowers don’t only beautify gardens but are also used to beautify different events as they are use as fillers in bouquets.

Ginger

Actually ginger is native to Asian region but now it is also cultivated in Florida, the Caribbean and West Africa. Ginger also belongs to the family of cardamom and turmeric and hence its roots are used in making different medicines. If you will grow these in your garden, they will make your garden look elegant due to its flowers which have different colors including pink, white, red and yellow. Growing from 1 to 6 feet tall, it grows rapidly to form bunches. It also provides long-lasting cut flowers.
