The Top Flowers to Send and Grow in Winter

The Top Flowers to Send and Grow in Winter

It’s common to assume that when the weather gets colder, and the ground gets drier, all of the blossoms we typically love will dry out. However, that’s not always the cause. The Australian landscape is full of amazing plants that can survive in even the toughest conditions!

The Plants that Bloom Throughout the Year

Because Australia is such a diverse and large place, we’re often exposed to a range of different climates, all in the same country. Because of this, different plants will appear in the winter months according to the region that you live in. 

For instance, in the subtropical areas of Australia, like Southern Queensland, and New South Wales, there are still many easy-to-grow and flowering plants that still thrive in the colder weather. For instance, paper daises are a popular favourite among many homeowners, along with flame creepers, birds of paradise, and Grevillea. 

In the wet and dry tropical environment of North Queensland, Western Australia, and Northern Territory, the weather permits the growth of many amazing flowering plants, including:

  • Sunflowers
  • Snapdragons
  • Dahlia
  • Carnations
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Gerbera
  • Geranium
  • Everlasting daisy
  • Petunia
  • Marigolds

When you head to dry inland regions of the “outback” in central Australia, there are still plenty of flowers available to grow, from Alyssum and Cosmos to Dianthus and Impatiens. You can also explore the option of growing things like Torenia flowers, Salvia, or Zinnia too!

Flowers Still Grow in Colder Regions

In Mediterranean regions like Adelaide and Perth, you might expect to see a wider range of flowers that are still growing in the winter. For instance, these locations usually have access to things like marigolds, wallflowers, and even forget-me-not blossoms during the colder months of the year. 

As the temperature drops even lower in certain regions like Tasmania and Melbourne, life still finds a way. You can discover a range of stunning blossoms in the form of pansies, poppies, viola, and foxglove. We also like experimenting with foxglove, dianthus, cornflowers, and hollyhocks too! 

If you don’t want to struggle with trying to plant and grow your own flowers during the winter months, but you don’t want to miss out on their stunning charm, why not buy yourself a bouquet?

Remind your loved ones of the joy of spring or send something to brighten their day when the weather gets colder. Contact us if you want to find out more, we’re here to help!
