No garden ever seems quite complete if it doesn’t have some shade of red or pink flowers blooming in it. It’s quite possible that red and pink are the most popular shades of flowers actually, and with good reason. There are hundreds of plants which create flower blooms in these shades, and when you have large groups of red or pink in your garden, you can’t help but have it noticed around the neighborhood.
Roses of course are possibly one of the most favorite flowers to grow in shades of red or pink, and they can of course be grown as bushes and shrubs, or you can choose to grow climbing rose vines or wild roses and miniature roses too.
Tulips are probably the second most favorite garden flowers to grow, and like roses, these too come in a variety of shades of both red and pink. There are many other types of red and pink flowers to choose from though, so we’ll take a look at several of those here…
Amaryllis – Like tulips and roses, these flowers are often grown in cutting gardens, so the beautiful flowers can be put on display inside the house as often as possible. They can be grown indoors or out, and they’re resistant to deers outside too. Various species of the Amaryllis bloom in deep, bright red colors too. Try out the Red Peacock, Red Lion, and Ferrari varieties for the deepest splashes of red blooms.
Astilbe – These are another type of plant which can be found in various shades of deep red. Other related colors include peaches and pinks too. These feathery flowers stand up tall on stalks above the plants which produce them. The flower stalks tend to attract hummingbirds, and the foilage is quite interesting in the winter time too.
The Jacobean Lily, or Aztec Lily, produces amazing blood red flowers which bloom very well in the spring time. This flower can be grown outdoors in the garden bed, in containers on the patio, or as an indoor house plant.
Spiraea ‘Magic Carpet’ – This plant will grow to about one and one half feet tall, and spread about two feet wide. It produces a deep pink to red colored flower cluster in early summer. By fall, the leaves start turning a reddish color of their own, and often this plant will stay colorful through November.
