Hi there...

we will be putting our home on the market at the end of the month and need some ideas of flowers to put in my large flower pots outside to give my home some curb appeal. I am not good with flowers and don't know much about them which is a shame lol. I live in the pacific northwest near portland oregon and looking for some good hardy flowers that are good for outside at this time of year. Any suggestions will be very appreciated.

Thank you

Have you tried your local Garden Centers for advice for your area? They would be the experts that know what to grow at this time of the year with your weather taken into consideration.

I live in So. California near the beach and this year we had 3 or 4 straight nights of freezing (not a hard freeze) weather - all my pots of annuals survived - pansies, nemesia, dianthus, cyclamen, calendula, alysum, stock, snap dragons, etc. Nitram is right - go to your garden center - chances are they are selling things right now that would be appropriate for your area.

Big pots of pansies do well in cold weather.

We donot blindly pick flowers infact should know the exact conditions where to grow specific flowers. So take some experts idea before implementing your idea.

Thanks,
