Hey All, I'm compiling a list of plants that flower in Spring AND Fall and I was wondering if you could please help me add some items. This is what I have so far:

Iberis sempervirens 'Autumn Beauty' (Perennial Candytuft)
Encore Azaleas

Thanks much!

RE: Flowers in Spring AND Fall

i took him to mean rebloomers...


RE: Flowers in Spring AND Fall

Daphne x transatlantica 'Summer Ice' has variegated leaves and small clusters of blooms from mid-April most years in my garden through several frosts until we have a good freeze. So it blooms spring and fall, but has flowers all the time in between as well.

Some of the type 2 pruning clematis will bloom in spring, and then if cut back will bloom again in September.

Many roses will either bloom with many flushes or will bloom spring and fall when the weather is cooler, like Zephrine Drouin. (There are also many that bloom spring only.)

All great ones. Thanks!

Incidentally, I'm compiling the list of ideas for people I know who vacation away from home the entire summer (late June thru late August).

Lucky them, huh?

RE: Flowers in Spring AND Fall

There are some reblooming irises, although I don't know exactly when they rebloom. I have a NOID dwarf purple that actually has rebloomed in November for me. It was sold as Royal Knight but I think it was mislabeled. Anyway, not sure if in general reblooming irises rebloom in fall or just later in summer.

Maybe they should concentrate on planting spring-bloomers and fall-bloomers?

Wow, they are lucky. Although I would miss my garden being away that long, lol - perhaps the ideal situation would be to have the whole summer off, but be able to spend a lot of it at home in the garden!
