In your experience, what (garden) plants seem to flower in nearly all seasons or have a long (if not perpetual) flowering period at least?

My geraniums and salvia splendens bloom in all seasons. They're a nonstop when it comes to flowering. Euphorbia milii also flowers for a long time, though it has a lull in the winter.

Most of the annuals will repeat bloom, while perennials will not as a general rule. I have had good luck with zinnias, cosmos, morning glory, portulaca, and marigolds for continuous color all summer into fall.

Lots of old roses will bloom all year round in milder climates. I'm looking at one bush like that, right now.

My Fuchsia's bloom a lot up until it just gets so cold they can't anymore (non hardy) but more than most anything else that I have. My Torenia Fournieri (wishbone flower) also blooms proficiently from Spring thru the end of fall here (7b).
I do have some rose bushes that also bloom a lot for a good while but I couldn't tell you what they are as they were here when I bought the house and I just don't know.

Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of ideas to offer you as I am only personally familiar with the ones that deer won't eat. I can't even try anything else around here.
Oh... I get a LOT of color tho for a long time from Magilla Perilla (non-invasive, non-edible annual), but no flowers. But I get a LOT of people stopping by asking what they are because they really are beautifully colored and get about 3-4' high. A lot of the pics I see online just don't even do justice to the beautiful coloring I get from them here (also from start of spring thru end of fall).

Chilean Glory Vine (Eccremocarpus Scaber) starts blooming early in spring, and lasts well into late fall, in our case this last year until as late as early November. They are very popular with the hummingbirds. Ours will die back after the first hard freeze, even down to the ground most years, but new growth starts my March and blooms soon after.
