Flowers that are Native to New York
New York City may be considered the Concrete Jungle, but there are actually more than 5.2 million trees growing on public and private property throughout our city. As your urban gardeners in New York, our team at Campbell’s Gardens brings the serenity of nature to your garden space. To create a garden that is uniquely New York, and to ensure your garden thrives, we help you find and plant species that are native to the region.
New York Aster- These lavender, pale pink and white perennials bloom in the late summer and early autumn, adding a burst of color just as the rest of the garden begins to fade. In the wild, you’ll find these flowers growing along shorelines and marshlands. If you’re looking to attract butterflies to your garden, New York Aster is a must.
Giant Sunflower- Helianthus giganteus sure lives up to the giganteus part of its name, with stalks that can grow up to 13-14 feet tall. The nomenclature ‘sunflower’ is no accident either, as these beauties thrive in full, direct sunlight. Expect your sunflowers to reach full bloom by late summer, lasting for about 2-3 weeks.
Trumpet Honeysuckle- Also referred to as coral honeysuckle, these flowers grow on vines and provide nectar for butterflies and hummingbirds. The honeysuckle vines grow fast, reaching lengths of twenty feet or more, making them a great option for covering a fence or trellis. The burnt orange colored flowers bloom continuously throughout the summer and well into fall.
