Even though you suffer from allergies, doesn’t mean you don’t like flowers. It doesn’t mean you wouldn’t like to enjoy growing them more or enjoy having a few bouquets of them inside your home either.
As an allergy sufferer you should look for a flower that produces little pollen such as:
Dahlias are tubular plants that grow hardy in zones 7 – 11. These plants should be planted in early spring. Then in the summer they can be cut back and enjoyed in one’s home. Come fall, the plants need to be dug back up and placed in a dark spot for the winter.
Snapdragons are very fragrant flowers that come in a variety of colors. They grow well in zones 8 -10. They grow in spike type flowers in two different heights. The dwarf version grows at about 10 inches tall and the taller types can grow as high as 5 feet. A single snapdragon can also produce as many as eight to ten blossoms per flower.
They can be sowed by seedlings which should be planted after the last frost. These are considered an annual flower that is great for cutting.
Like the snapdragon, the Iris comes in a variety of colors. Iris is a considered a perennial plant that grows from bulbs. They come in different varieties. Some may grow as little as 4 to 6 inches tall where as others can grow as tall as 6 feet.
The germanium is considered a staple flower for many gardeners. It is a hardy flower for zones 4 -8. They can within stand full sun and even drought like conditions. They come in a variety of sizes ranging from 3 inches tall to 2 feet. They have a grand display of green foliage and small flowers.
Hopefully, if you are an allergy sufferer, you will at least be able to enjoy one of flowers on the above list, at least in your garden.
