AROUND THE HOUSE: PLAN A FRONT DOOR GARDEN

Create an unforgettable entrance to your home by wrapping your front door with beautiful blooms. Brightly colored flowers and attractive foliage are the world's best welcome mat. You'll delight everyone who comes by, and find yourself smiling every time you come home.

For non-stop color from summer to frost, you can count on summer-blooming bulbs. Dahlias come in a rainbow of colors so it's easy to choose varieties that will suit your personal style and complement the exterior of your home. Dahlias grow as well in containers as they do in garden beds and there are many flower sizes and heights to choose from. Summer bouquets are an added benefit, as dahlias are excellent cut flowers.

The example below features low-growing border dahlias and several types of decorative and dinnerplate dahlias as well as calla lilies.
