Imagine a garden that pumps out gorgeous blooms over a long season. All the flower colors you've ever dreamed of are here ― red, yellow, and apricot roses, orange and purple dahlias, candy pink phlox, blue catmint, lavender buddleja ― weaving a rich tapestry that's frequented by birds, butterflies, and bouquet makers. Imagine it's easy to care for, too, with soaker hoses taking care of watering a couple of times a week during the growing season, and only an occasional need for feeding. Sound too good to be true?
