Cool-weather flowers with warm colors

Lucky gardeners in warmer states get to enjoy greenery and blooms in their gardens all year long. If you live in a warm state, it can be hard to decide what to plant when the rest of the country seems to go into hibernation.

According to The Miami Herald, pansies and violas are good flowering plants that thrive through the mild winters in Florida and other warm states. Whether you have an expansive backyard garden or simply some window boxes, pansies and violas are easy to plant, simple to care for, and offer the perfect splash of color.

These flowers commonly bloom in shades of purple, blue, yellow and gold and look great with other plants that are happy in cooler temperatures, like certain lettuce, parsley and spinach varieties. Violets and pansies require about six to 10 hours of daylight, so place or plant them in a sunny spot.

If you can't plant these hardy but dainty blooms outside, decorate the inside of your home with fall flowers or indoor plants. Fall sunflowers make lovely Thanksgiving centerpieces, while house plants like orchids or a Sweet Violet Trio also make a lovely decoration.
