    Peony (Paeonia lactiflora) Peonies are old-fashioned plants with big, impressive blooms and a wide range of color options. Most flower for about 2 weeks in May and June, but after, its dark-green foliage remains attractive through early fall. Grows 30 to 36 inches tall and wide in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 8; full sun or part shade.

    Snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus) produce an abundance of glossy green leaves and richly shaded or bicolored blossoms from April through the first frost. | Photo: Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden |
