Sunflowers and lavender🌻🌸
Pretty ones
All of them. All the flowers
I think tulips, daisy, black eye Susan’s and carrots!!!( the horse might like that)
Local wildflowers, most wildflowers are fine for livestock and go well in most climates
Climate, moisture, amount of sunlight & soil conditions will dictate plant selection. As a Landscape Architect I always recommend flowering perennials be in pots or containers which require less maintenance & directs the eye with colour their whatever you want to highlight. For example an entry or seating area
Thanks to all of you for your answers! :)
If you live in a warmer place, I think Daisy’s look great! Also just any green ground cover, and if the climate is suitable you might be able to grown strawberries too
Lilacs, Marigolds, Tulips, it mainly depends on how your barn area is colored or built
I really like peonies, marigolds, hydrangeas or an assortment of grasses. It really depends on your stables colour scheme, but any flower is a good choice! Hope this helps!
Hi Alexandra! :)
I really love how petunias look around the stables and there are so many colors of this kind of plant and the flower is always open. But you have to be careful with low temperatures... because the plant could die...
Hope it helps! :D
