What kind of flowers grow well even in poor soil?
Do you have any recommendations for flowers that grow well in poor soil?
lily of the valley can grow well in a poor soil. It is a perennial flower that produces white and pink bell shaped blossoms
Nasturiums are flowers that seem to grow better in poor soil than in rich, fertile soil. They are annuals that are easy to grow from seed, and are available in a variety of red, yellow and orange shades.
Most plants classified as 'succulents' will grow very well in poor soil. There are very attractive sedum that fit the bill. They also thrive on neglect, and are not fussy or demanding. Succulents prefer dry growing conditions as well. Most sedum are perennial, and will return each year.
Herbs also benefit from average soil, and most do not like a lot of fertilization either. Many herbs have wonderful flowers to enjoy in the garder, or as a bouquet for the home. There are plenty of herb varieties that are also perennial, and can be enjoyed for many years to come.
Many annual flowers grow well in poor soil. However, a better approach would be to amend the soil you have. What do the plants do that are there right now? Your soil may also just be outside of the pH range most plants like. It should be between 5-6.5 for most plants.
