Ever wonder what type of flowers can bloom all-year round even with the unpredictable weather? We've put together this list for you with bonus tips on how to take care of your blooms to make sure they survive for a longer time.
This sub-shrub is a favorite among landscape artists as it gives a “full garden look” all-year round. The Mediterranean Spurge can grow up to 3-4 ft. tall and needs to be trimmed from time to time to maintain its glory.
It thrives more on summer days although it blooms during early spring with bottlebrush-like greenish-yellow flowers.
Important Tip: Wear gardening gloves when pruning your Mediterranean Spurge because its stems and leaves contain poisonous milky-like sap.
Smooth hydrangea is a deciduous plant with clustered creamy-white flowers. This flowering plant is perfect accent to your garden. It brightens shady areas and blooms non-stop from early summer to fall. There are different kinds of hydrangeas but taking care of them is pretty much straightforward and the same for all variants.
Important Tip: Smooth hydrangeas bloom on new branches, prune during late winter or early spring to boost growth. The more pruning you do the bigger the flowers will be.
This blooming rambling rose bears huge bunches of fragrant, milky white flowers with bright yellow stamen that turns to pink when aged. It has a green and glossy foliage and thorn less stems.

This is also a good plant to attract bees because of its single, open bud and encourage pollination.
Important Tip: Plant the Rosa ‘Wedding Day’ in a fertile, moist but well-drained soil under the sun and cover it once a year with compost.
The Golden Trumpet gained its name because of its trumpet-shaped flower. It blooms all-year round with little care needed. Apart from its beautiful golden flowers, it is medicinal too – it is used to destroy bacteria and reduce swelling. This plant thrives more under the sun but if grown indoors, make sure it gets at least 4 hours of sun exposure.
Important Tip: Although this plant is woody and a “climber”, you can prune it to grow as a shrub especially if you have small or limited space in your garden.
This flowering plant is a perfect choice if you have a woodland garden. The Mourning Widow usually blooms into groups of deeply-cut green plants with unique dark maroon-purple cluster of flowers.

This herbaceous plant specie belongs to the Geranium family that is used in the production of essential oils mostly used in perfume-making and cultivated ornamentals.
Important Tip: This plant prefers rich and moist soil. Make sure to prune your Mourning Widow after blooming to encourage healthy foliage.
The Primrose is a stunning addition to your garden all-year round with its stunning yellow flowers that turns your ground carpet-like during its peak season.
