Q.What perennial can I grow to significant flowering state in 2 seasons in Zone 3?

Zone Edmonton AB | dancingfool12 added on March 11, 2019 | Answered

Hi there!

My fiance and I are getting married in mid August 2020. We live in zone 3 I believe, in Edmonton AB. We just bought our house last year mid summer and have not gotten a chance to get any gardening going.

I am looking for a flowering plant I can get going now and hopefully cut the fresh blooming flowers and bring with us to our wedding 4 hours away just outside Calgary.

The space I am wanting to plant them gets a lot of sunlight in the day so I assume they would need to be a pretty sturdy flower that likes lots of sun.

I was looking at hydrangeas but it seems these can take 3-4 years to really get going from seed, and I’m hoping to find some options for a shorter time frame. I know that from seed is unlikely, but it is preferable. I am able to start warming seeds now.

Thank you for any assistance!
